BNSF Carload 2023 Thanksgiving Operating Plan

Nov 3, 2023

This year, BNSF will observe the Thanksgiving holiday on Thursday, November 23, and Friday, November 24. Train service will not be curtailed due to the holiday; however, BNSF plans to minimize the number of yard, local and road-switch assignments at terminals during the holiday consistent with customer activity and volume demand. Connecting carriers who have reduced operations for the holiday may cause delays on interline traffic.

Please refer to Demurrage Tariff 6004-C to review the free time and charges for Thanksgiving – November 23-24, 2023.
