OMAHA, Neb. — Federal regulators have rescheduled a hearing on CSX railroad’s service problems that was delayed when Hurricane Irma struck Florida.
The Surface Transportation Board said Wednesday that the hearing will be held on Oct. 11.
CSX will discuss its efforts to improve service, and railroad customers will be able to tell regulators about the problems they experienced.
CSX has been working to overhaul its operations this summer after new CEO Hunter Harrison took over.
CSX says its service has been improving since the worst delays during the summer.
The average speed of CSX’s trains has improved over the past several weeks to 15 mph, but many of the manufacturers and chemical makers who rely on the railroad say they still have concerns about CSX’s service.
