BNSF Automotive 2015 Independence Day Operating Plan

HOLIDAY OBSERVANCE
This year, the Independence Day holiday falls on Saturday, July 4.

TRAIN SERVICE
BNSF's Automotive 2015 operating plan for the Independence Day holiday will remain focused on meeting customers' expectations while matching operations to any reductions in traffic volumes. Given variable volume levels we may see during the holiday and model year plant shutdowns, we anticipate some extending of our service schedules as we consolidate volumes to fill trains. We anticipate that shipments originating or arriving destination on Friday, July 3 through Tuesday, July 14, may experience extended destination availabilities of up to 24 hours.

INTERLINE TRAFFIC
Reduced operations are not expected. BNSF will accept and deliver all regularly scheduled interchanges. Delays may occur on interline traffic if connecting carriers have reduced operations for the holiday.

AUTOMOTIVE FACILITY OPERATIONS
All Automotive facilities will be open during the holiday.
