Rail Runner service expected to resume

August 4, 2014 • State News

SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) — New Mexico transportation officials say all Rail Runner service is expected to resume a day after being derailed by severe rain.

The New Mexico Department of Transportation says all [auth] trains should operate on schedule Sunday after some routes were shut down because of a washout along a key route.

Officials say rain caused a culvert near the top of Waldo Canyon to overflow, endangering the stability and drainage for the tracks.

Rail Runner canceled all service to Santa Fe as a result.

Rio Metro crews spent Saturday repairing the railroad tricks.

Heavy rainfall has hit the southwestern part of the state as well as Albuquerque since Friday.

Downtown Albuquerque streets were flooded late Friday leaving cars nearly covered in water and some residents stranded.
