Last Friday, the Santa Maria Valley experienced a significant amount of rain resulting in flooding on portions of our line. Fortunately, we only suffered minor damages, however, it is taking longer than expected to reopen the tracks. We closed the tracks on Friday morning as a safety precaution, we expect to have the tracks open by noon today. We should be able to serve most of our customers by late this afternoon as we work down our backlog.
Track work and road bed work has paid off the last several years, most of our line was unscathed from the recent storms. Thank you for your patience.
