Regional Outlook
The Western Region has improved, as velocity has increased month over month. As we continue to work to reduce inventory at our network yards and the region has fewer track renewal projects in the coming months, we anticipate further improvement. However, the recent tunnel collapse between Eugene and Chemult, Oregon, may delay the anticipated improvement as we work to repair the tunnel and trains in the region are rerouted for a period of days.

"...corridor serving 18 to 20 trains a day."

"We don't know how long it will be until this is out," said Ed Immel, rail planner with the Oregon Department of Transportation.

The closure has forced Union Pacific to route some Los Angeles-bound freight as far east as Salt Lake City, Immel said. The railroad also is diverting trains through Bend on a Burlington Northern Santa Fe-owned rail line, Immel said. But the line, known as the Oregon Trunk, normally handles only 10 trains daily.

"That Oregon Trunk railroad just doesn't have the capacity to handle 18 to 20 new trains a day," Immel said.
