Preliminary Report: Derailment at Melrose, New Mexico

On Sunday, December 27th, 2015 at 2:20 p.m. Central Time, we received a preliminary report that the S-ALTSCO3-25 derailed on the main tracks at Melrose, New Mexico. Melrose, New Mexico is approximately 25 miles from Clovis, New Mexico. Due to ongoing blizzard conditions in the area hampering recovery, the estimated time for opening for the main tracks has not been determined.

BNSF will continue to provide you with additional information as it becomes available. Customers may experience delays of 24 to 48 hours on shipments moving through this corridor.
