BN trains may have to be rerouted from Lincoln to Kansas
A Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railway spokesman said flooding along the Missouri River may cause trains to be rerouted between Lincoln and Kansas.
BN spokesman Andy Williams said today that about 40 trains — most of them carrying coal from Wyoming — travel daily from Lincoln to Napier, Kan., but that route may change.
“We’re hoping not to have to reroute them,” he said.
If that happens, the trains would likely go from Wyoming south down the Front Range.

Amtrak has been rerouting for some time now… They claimed that they would be able to resume today, but I’m not sure how that is going to happen. We have tickets for Amtrak on the 26th so we’ve been paying very close attention to how the flooding is affecting train routes.
Let me rephrase that, not rerouting, flat out cancelling.
Now they are saying the 15th, but I think they are being very optimistic.
