Report: Midwest Floods Affect BNSF Coal Network
BNSF is experiencing water-related service interruptions impacting train movements through Lincoln, Nebraska to Kansas City, Memphis, Saint Louis, Sioux City and Galesburg. Loaded and empty trains along this route may experience delays between 24 to 36 hours to accommodate time for waters to recede.
BNSF is managing traffic flows through the affected areas, detouring trains where alternate routes are available and making every effort to alleviate the effects of the flooding on your shipments.
We will continue to manage the flow of coal trains to determine the impact and will provide you with additional information as it becomes available.
Thank you for your business. If you have any questions, please contact your BNSF representative at 888-428-2673, option 4, option 2.
