Vermont Rail System along with all railroads in the Northeast US has been severely impacted by Hurricane Irene. We have had numerous washouts across our system and still have many sections underwater. Some bridge structures have also been compromised. Service has been severely curtailed or cancelled today on all line segments. Interline service with our connecting roads has also been cancelled for today. We are still doing a detailed assessment and will be providing regular updates as we complete repairs and we bring service back on line. In addition we are working with our connections to arrange detours where necessary to keep traffic moving. We will also looking at transload options where feasible. If you have any questions please call your VRS representative or our customer service representatives at 1-800-639-3088.

We will be working around the clock over the next several days and as long as it takes to restore service across our system. Our next service bulletin will be provided at approximately 5:00 PM today.
