Update on Alexandria, VA Derailment

Update as of 4:00 p.m. Sunday, May 20

CSX continues to work closely with local, state and federal officials at the site of Saturday morning's derailment in Alexandria, VA. Overnight and throughout the day today, crews were given approval to move the locomotives from the train, re-rail the cars without damage, remove the derailed railcars with damage and begin cleaning up debris. Freight and passenger train service has resumed at slower speeds on two of the three tracks, where there were no structural impacts or damage from the derailment.

The derailment remains under investigation by the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB). While there is no timeline for the completion of the clean-up work, CSX and its contractors will work around the clock, as safely as possible and as approved by the NTSB. We are also coordinating closely with passenger service providers and the City of Alexandria about any impacts to commuter and passenger train schedules.
