Preliminary Report - Washouts on Pacific Northwest Division
We have a preliminary report of five subdivisions removed from service as thru-routes account flood conditions and washouts: Scenic, Stampede, Sumas, Bellingham and Fallbridge. Various washouts have been reported along the main track, preventing movement on these subdivisions. In addition, the Seattle Subdivision reported a mud slide blocking Main Two near Longview Jct., WA, 35 miles north of Vancouver , however, there is a clear route via Main One at this time.
The purpose of this email is to inform customers that BNSF personnel are enroute to these locations to determine the impact and how this may affect shipments on trains moving through this area.
No further information is available at this time. Customers will receive a separate advisory as soon as we receive additional updates, outlining the anticipated impact to shipments and the estimated time of the track opening.
