Sample article from our Logistic & Supply Chain

November 26, 2023 (press release) –

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – November 26, 2023 - At 3:30 p.m. yesterday, CSX teams completed the removal of all 16 railcars involved in last Wednesday’s derailment just north of Livingston, Ky. CSX has also, in close coordination with local authorities and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, worked through the night to clean up and restore the incident site. Early this morning, crews successfully removed all of the released product and approximately 2,500 tons of impacted soil and replaced it with clean material. CSX engineering teams are now in the process of repairing the tracks and restoring service on the rail line which we expect to be completed by noon today.

An investigation determined that a failed wheel bearing on one of the cars caused the derailment.

CSX extends its deepest gratitude to Rockcastle County authorities for their support and close collaboration throughout the response to this incident. We are also thankful for the community members and local businesses that worked with us to help residents that were affected, especially those that assisted us in serving Thanksgiving dinners for the community. CSX apologizes for the inconvenience this incident caused the local community and is appreciative for everyone’s patience throughout the recovery effort.

CSX is still offering support to affected residents and we encourage them to contact 1-800-805-9840 for information.
