NORFOLK SOUTHERN RAILWAY REOPENS MAIN LINE BETWEEN KANSAS CITY AND ST. LOUIS FOLLOWING MISSISSIPPI RIVER FLOOD DAMAGE REPAIRS

 NORFOLK, Va., Aug. 25 /PRNewswire/ -- Norfolk Southern Railway Company reopened its main line between Kansas City and St. Louis this week after completing repairs to damage caused by the flooding Missouri River. After the water receded, repair crews worked around the clock to repair five miles of track that had been washed out, including a hole 65 feet deep and 700 feet long near Dewitt, Mo., using rock from a local quarry.
 The railroad began limited service on the line Sunday, Aug. 22, running eight trains a day (four each way), and resumed normal service of ten trains a day today.
 Norfolk Southern's main line between Hannibal, Mo., and a point 10 miles east remains closed and is expected to reopen in about two weeks if flood waters from the Mississippi recede. In the meantime, traffic between Decatur, Ill., and Moberly, Mo., enroute to Kansas City is being detoured through St. Louis.
