Trestle Fire on Mobile Line

A trestle fire between Jackson and Suggsville, Alabama (north of Mobile) has disrupted Norfolk Southern mainline operations between Birmingham and Mobile, Alabama. We are currently working to assess damage and restore operations as quickly as possible, including possible reroutes. However customers with shipments normally moving over this line should expect delays.

Customers with questions regarding specific shipments should contact their Customer Service Representative.
