NORFOLK, Va. — Norfolk Southern restored the main line to service following the mainline derailment in Columbia, South Carolina; however, a bridge washout, not related to the derailment, has occurred approximately four miles west of the derailment site. NS expects the route between Spartanburg, South Carolina and Columbia, South Carolina subsequently to remain out of service for approximately one week. Norfolk Southern personnel are en route to begin damage assessments.
NS is detouring traffic to minimize the delay. Customers with traffic moving through both areas should anticipate a delay of 24 to 48 hours while normal operations are restored. Norfolk Southern will provide updates as conditions change.
