BNSF to move idled rail cars near Big Sandy
GREAT FALLS, Mont. (AP) -- BNSF Railway Co. plans to put back into service
idled rail cars that have been stored on tracks near Big Sandy and between Great
Falls and Cascade.
BNSF spokesman Gus Melonas tells the Great Falls Tribune that the flatbed
cars used to ship intermodal containers were stored before Christmas because
of lack of demand.
Now demand is back up and the railroad will start by moving out 14 train
lengths of cars near Big Sandy over the next few months.
BNSF plans to follow that up by moving about six train lengths of cars stored
on track between Great Falls and Cascade by midsummer if demand keeps up.
