NS KC-Moberly District Detours
Author: billyjacobs19

Due to the bridge washout on the NS KC-Moberly District, which routes are the triple crown trains (NS 255/256) taking? Are they running via the UP Jefferson City Sub, the KCS Mexico Sub, or the BNSF Brookfield Sub? All those lines could be a possibility. Would like to catch them if they’re running through St Louis. Thanks.

During the remainder of the outage, NS plans to terminate 255 and originate 256 at Mitchell, Illinois on the site of the old Triple Crown facility. The trailers will ride I-70 across Missouri.

Great. That's just great. I'd personally like to thank NS for adding more friggin' truck trailers to the already jammed Interstate corridor that is I-70 between St. Louis and KC. BTW Roanoke. Did anyone tell you they're gonna start replacing the Missouri River bridge just west of Columbia, MO. soon? Better get your bridge done first and put those trailers back on the rails where they belong.   ×

To a degree I endorse gandydancer4's comments about truck traffic on I-70 between KC and STL.  And while MO has said they will be building a new bridge across the Missouri River, don't hold your breath!  They are still having hearings/discussions about where it will go since the old bridge will remain open during construction.  At the very least, construction on the east side of the bridge (the bluffs) will require significant rock removal (blasting) and road relocation.  (Editorial comment: MODOT does as good as a job as they can given the dismal funding Misery has available for transportation.)  I fully expect NS will have the bridge across the Grand River done well before Daylight Savings Time ends! Of course, man proposes, Mother Nature disposes!

Here is an aerial view of the former TC Yard in Mitchell, IL.

As for the other temporary changes for the Kansas City trains:

111, 112, and 297 are temporarily abolished.

148 and 29M are originating at Decatur.  They are still terminating at Bellevue, OH and Ft. Wayne, IN respectively.

285 and 239 are originating / terminating at St. Louis.  Both are still to and from Jacksonville, FL FEC and Georgetown, KY respectively.

120, 181, 223, 224, 20T, 21T are detouring via UP or BNSF (possibly even KCS) between Kansas City and St. Louis.

Is there a crossover from the NS to KCS in Mexico, Missouri? If so, that would seem to be the way to go.

Road Railers are too time sensitive to be rerouted. Putting them on Interstate 70 is the only option.

And it’s only for a few weeks. It’s not that big of deal

Believe me, nobody in "Roanoke" has been involved in this in a long, long time.
