Mississippi annulment
Author: WAT

My wife and I are making a circle trip starting in Atlanta. We received an e-mail today that the leg of our  trip from New Orleans to Chicago has been annulled from New Orleans to Jackson, MS. "Track work !!!"

Does anybody have any information ?   Bill Teasley

The dreailment mentioned in the previous response was on the Norfolk Southern, and should not impact your trip between New Orleans and Jackson, MS.  It may, however, affect the Birmingham to New Orleans portion of the trip, if you're taking that route.  It is likely that CN is doing some work between New Orleans and Jackson due to the rainfall experienced this past week.  Some locations along that portion of the CN received 15 inches of rain between Wednesday and Sunday.  I suspect there are a lot of washouts along the line, especially south of McComb, MS.

All you have to do is look at yesterdays passenger
board for your answer.

Tracks closed in/out of New Orlaens,  flood gates closed,  knee high water in parts of New Orleans.

Plus derailkments north and east of NOL.

The starting in Atlanta part of the original question is what I answered.
The question was about the section NO to Jackson MS. My error
Thanks VR to clearing that up!!!
