Service Disruption Near Latrobe, PA- Update

Nov 09, 2019


Norfolk Southern personnel continue working to restore service following yesterday afternoon’s derailment near Latrobe, PA, which blocked both of our main lines.  We expect to regain service along both of our main lines by late tonight.  However, all shipments moving within the following lanes will continue incurring transit and availability delays of at least 24 hours until service is restored to the route:

  • Northeast <> Chicago
  • Northeast <> Kansas City
  • Northeast <> St. Louis
  • NY/NJ Ports <> All locations

The derailment is not impacting shipments moving between Chicago and Albany, Ayer, Buffalo, and Taylor.

Customers with shipments involved in the derailment have been notified by our Intermodal Customer Service team. We will provide updates as information becomes available.
