KCS operates a line between Shreveport and New Orleans, which did sustain major damage, and as of last week, the line was only open as far south as Frellsen, which is about 10 miles outside New Orleans. No timetable is available yet on when full service will be restored. Fortunately, though, its east-west "Meridian Speedway" route, a key intermodal corridor between Meridian, MS and Shreveport, was not hit quite as hard, and has been back in service for several weeks now. Additionally, NS has an agreement with KCS to temporarily re-route its intermodal traffic on this segment between Mississippi and Texas, until repairs on its own route are complete.
