To Our Customers,
A natural gas pipeline leak just west of Pratt, Kansas, is impacting operations along our mainline route between Pratt and El Paso, Texas. The hazardous nature of the leak has made it unsafe to operate in the area, forcing us to suspend service until conditions return to normal.
During this time, trains are being rerouted around the affected area on a limited basis. Customers with rail shipments moving through the impacted area can expect delays between 36 and 48 hours.
If you have any questions, please contact Customer Care & Support at 800-272-8777 or your Union Pacific representative.
