The Surface Transportation Board has rescheduled its hearing on CSX Transportation, Inc.’s (CSXT) recent rail service problems for Wednesday, Oct. 11, 2017, at its headquarters in Washington, D.C. The hearing “will allow the Board to hear from CSXT about its service issues and recovery efforts, as well as hear from rail shippers and other stakeholders affected by service disruptions.”

Originally scheduled for Sept. 11, 2017, STB postponed the hearing due to Hurricane Irma.

The hearing will begin at 9:30 a.m. in the Board’s Hearing Room at the agency’s headquarters located at 395 E Street, S.W. The Board has directed CSXT to appear, and encourages impacted shippers and other railroads to appear as well. Shippers, railroads, and other stakeholders are requested to file with the Board a notice of intent to participate, identifying the party and the proposed speaker no later than Sept. 29, 2017. Any person who submitted a notice for the postponed hearing need not submit a notice for purposes of the rescheduled session, but may amend or withdraw the notice, if necessary.
