BNSF expects train traffic to resume to typical levels in coming week
If it’s the sound of a train horn or the rumbling of coal cars moving along the BNSF Railway line, there’s a reason for that.
Recently, there have been fewer coal trains running through the Brainerd area because of customers’ scheduled facility maintenance, said Amy McBeth, BNSF spokeswoman.
McBeth said across the railroad industry in 2012, “coal volumes were lower due to decreased demand resulting from low natural gas prices and milder weather.”
