Update Report: Service Interruption at Cajon Pass in California
On Tuesday, August 16, 2016 at 7:28 p.m. Central Time, BNSF reported a track outage caused by wildfires impacting our Cajon Subdivision, which runs between San Bernardino and Barstow, California. This location impacts traffic to and from the Southern California On-Dock (SCOD), Los Angeles and San Bernardino facilities.
The wildfires continue to prohibit the safe operation of trains through this area. While we remain optimistic that service can be restored this evening, the estimated time for opening for the main tracks has not been determined. BNSF is working closely with fire officials regarding this ongoing situation, and we are prepared to resume operations as soon as conditions permit.
BNSF will continue to provide you with additional information as it becomes available. Customers may experience delays of 36 to 48 hours on shipments moving through this corridor.
