Ft. Madison/Kansas City-St. Louis Issues

Brothers and Sisters,

I have received several calls and read various emails related to the Ft. Madison run and a supposed run from KC-StL and I will address those now.
Ft Madison:  It does appear from what we have seen that the Carrier is moving trains from the Ft. Madison run to other areas.  I have specifically asked the Carrier if their intention is to eliminate this run and have been told no.  I think the reality of the train movements speak for themselves, the UP wants to eliminate the payments to the BNSF.  We are looking into to our options at this time.
KC-St.L:  The Carrier has wanted this run for decades, and they mention it often but nothing has changed in the BLET's position and the BLET has not agreed to this run.
In Solidarity
