That is similar to a shutdown announced last week by Norfolk Southern, which plans to shut down on Dec. 24 remain idle until Dec. 27. NS has said that it will “not accept trains at interchanges” during the days that it is closed.

Trains magazine observed that also other Class I and regional railroads are scaling back operations on non-essential route, none are planning complete shutdowns as are NS and CSX.

Amtrak and commuter trains that use CSX and NS are not expected to be adversely affected by the holiday service closures.
