A possible bomb scare on an Amtrak train in northwestern Montana turned out to be a false alarm.
The train was traveling between East Glacier and Browning on Monday night when it stopped because a passenger made the threat of a bomb on board.
All of the passengers on the Empire Builder train were immediately taken off the train and to a local school.
FBI personnel then swept through the train with dogs and found no threat. The individual who made the bomb threat is currently in custody in Glacier County.
Authorities tell us that all of the passengers are safe and have reboarded the train.
