Service Disruption in Albers, IL

ATLANTA - Sep 19, 2022


This afternoon a non-intermodal train was involved in an incident that caused the derailment of 26 cars, including 2 hazardous shipments, in Albers, IL. The single mainline is currently blocked but NS personnel are on site to further assess and alternate routes are being determined.

While there are no Intermodal shipments directly involved in the derailment, customers should expect transit and availability delays of 24-48 hours on shipments moving between St Louis & Kansas City and all other points on the NS network.
