Update Report: Extreme Winter Weather on Montana Division

      As mentioned in a Service Advisory on February 27, 2011 BNSF service continues to be hampered due to extreme winter weather on the Montana Division. Weather conditions are essentially unchanged since our previous report. The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Storm Warning to remain in effect through Noon MST on Tuesday, March 1, 2011.

      Currently the main line through this region is in service, but operating conditions remain difficult. Customers should expect delays through this region over the next 24-48 hours and some traffic may be rerouted to alleviate train congestion. As information becomes available we will provide further communications.

      Updated shipment information is always available through the secure Rail Central web tool at

      If you need additional information, please contact BNSF Customer Support at 888-428-2673 option 4, option 3.
