CSX to cut back on car repair facilities

CSX will streamline operations at 16 of its car repair facilities as part of an ongoing effort to align resources with demand, the Class I announced last week.

Operations will be reduced at car shops in Montgomery, Ala.; Washington, D.C.; Baldwin, Fla.; Indianapolis and Evansville, Ind; New Orleans; Detroit and Grand Rapids, Mich.; Wilmington, N.C.; Kenmore, N.Y.; Ashtabula, Ohio; Erie and Pittsburgh, Pa.; Florence, S.C.; Richmond, Va.; and Huntington, W.Va., according to a CSX press release.

The streamlining is necessary to "better coordinate shop activities across the CSX network while maintaining inspection and maintenance performance levels," CSX officials said.

Some of the 116 affected employees will be able to fill positions in other higher-demand areas of the company, they said.
