BNSF checks for track damage, Norfolk Southern prepares to resume traffic

U.S. freight railroads are watching how tropical depression Cristobal might affect operations as it moves inland. They have also been waiting for the floodgates in New Orleans so that rail operations can resume.

The storm made landfall near Grand Isle, Louisiana, late Sunday evening and is expected to travel up the Mississippi River. Area flooding as the storm travels northward could potentially disrupt rail operations temporarily.

With the floodgates reopening, Norfolk Southern (NYSE: NSC) expects to start restart operations sometime between this afternoon and Tuesday, June 9.
