Rail services of Wilmington Port have resumed

Rail traffic at the Port of Wilmington has resumed following an embargo by Jacksonville, Florida-based CSX on traffic to Wilmington because of Hurricane Florence.

The first inbound train arrived at the Port of Wilmington on Tuesday night, officials with CSX said Wednesday. The rail company had embargoed inbound traffic between Lumberton and Wilmington following the storm, due to impacts on infrastructure.

"We have resumed all normal service to the port. Last night, the first inbound train arrived there," a CSX spokesperson said in an email Wednesday.

Bethany Welch, spokeswoman for N.C. Ports, said Wednesday that train was for general cargo, with another train arriving scheduled to arrive Wednesday night. She added that port officials do not have a timeline of when service for the Queen City Express, a double-stacked train service that runs between Wilmington and Charlotte, would resume.

Welch said the Port of Wilmington "did not suffer any damage to rail lines."
