Railways Release Grain Car Update

Posted: Updated:

The effects of last year's harsh winter conditions are lingering on the state's railways as recovery is slow for the two rail companies operating in North Dakota.

BNSF railways reported over 1,200 late rail cars in North Dakota, with a 19-day delay on receiving the cars, which is an improvement from last week's report of 1,600 late cars. Canadian Pacific also showed some progress with open requests for cars dropped from over 22,000 to 21,500.

The two companies are required to submit weekly reports to the Surface Transportation Board until the backlog of grain car orders is resolved.
