Rail News: CSX Transportation
CSX resumes service to Port of Wilmington
CSX this week resumed rail service to the Port of Wilmington, North Carolina, following a stoppage due to Hurricane Florence.
The first inbound train arrived at the port on Tuesday night, according to a report on Wilmingtonbiz.com.
CSX had embargoed inbound traffic between Lumberton and Wilmington after the storm due to the impact on rail infrastructure, the news site reported.
A port spokeswoman said the storm did not damage the port's rail infrastructure.
North Carolina's ports in Wilmington and Morehead City resumed full commercial truck operations last week, after the hurricane forced the terminals to close Sept. 13. Vessel operations returned to business on Sept. 20.
"North Carolina Ports' facilities in Wilmington and Morehead City suffered some damage during Hurricane Florence. Our employees along with local, state and federal agencies worked around the clock to get our waterside terminals up and running as quickly and safely as possible," said NC Ports Executive Director Paul Cozza in a press release.
