BNSF Coal 2014 Christmas and New Year’s Operating Plan

HOLIDAY OBSERVANCE
This year, the Christmas holiday falls on Wednesday, Dec. 24 and Thursday, Dec. 25, and the New Year’s holiday on Wednesday, Dec. 31, and Thursday, Jan. 1.

TRAIN SERVICE
BNSF’s Coal 2014 Christmas and New Year’s operating plan will remain focused on meeting customers’ expectations while continuing efforts to restore network fluidity and velocity. During the holiday period, coal trains – both loaded and empty – will operate according to normal schedules.

Unit coal trains – both loaded and empty – will operate normally over the Christmas and New Year’s holidays, subject to customer locations and interchanges being able to process trains. Additionally, BNSF will attempt to keep trains at our crews’ home terminals between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. on Christmas Day (Thursday, Dec. 25) if capacity exists at the terminal. On New Year’s Eve (Wednesday, Dec. 31) and New Year’s Day (Thursday, Jan. 1), unit coal trains will operate normally.

During the holidays, non-unit coal train service will align with traffic volume, but will operate as normally as possible. BNSF will attempt to keep trains at our crews’ home terminals between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. on Christmas Day (Thursday, Dec. 25) if capacity exists at the terminal.
