ILLINOIS CENTRAL RAILROAD SUSTAINS NO SIGNIFICANT DAMAGE

 ILLINOIS CENTRAL RAILROAD SUSTAINS NO SIGNIFICANT DAMAGE
 CHICAGO, Aug. 27 /PRNewswire/ -- In the wake of Hurricane Andrew,


Illinois Central Railroad resumed partial operations Wednesday evening in the New Orleans-Geismar-Baton Rouge area. The company suffered little physical damage from the storm. However, operations are hindered by lack of electric power.
 "As soon as it was safe to do so yesterday afternoon, our folks began clearing debris from tracks to get trains rolling again," explained Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Edward L. Moyers. "As the storm was approaching, we had secured trains and equipment in McComb, Mississippi, and points north. Now we have a backlog of traffic to move into the New Orleans-Baton Rouge
area. In addition, we are resuming service to our local customers today."
 "Our level of operation continues to improve in the region as power becomes available to us, and we are hopeful to be back to normal operations there over the next few days."
