Service Update for Friday, July 17, 2015
The operation experienced solid performance gains again this week with velocity improvements and a substantial double-digit decline in total trains held. System velocity was up across all business units and good fluidity was maintained throughout the network. While flooding issues abated during the week, the River Subdivision in Missouri remains out of service due to high water in several locations. Our crews continue to make all necessary track repairs and we anticipate that service could be restored as early as this weekend.
