NS Track Work Disrupt Crescent

Some passengers on Amtrak’s Crescent will be riding a bus between Atlanta and New Orleans due to Norfolk Southern track work.

Nos. 19 and 20 will not operate between Atlanta and New Orleans on Jan. 20, 27 and Feb. 3, 10 and 12.

The Crescent normally originates in New York on Tuesday, Friday and Sunday and from New Orleans on Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday.

On the days when the trains are not operating between Atlanta and New Orleans, it will either terminate or originate in Atlanta.

Alternative bus service will be provided to Anniston, Birmingham, Tuscaloosa, Meridian, Laurel, Hattiesburg, Picayuane, Slidell and New Orleans.

On Fridays and Saturdays, Train 19 will operate normally, serving all stations on the route.

Train 20 will operate normally to all stations on Saturdays and Sundays.

Amtrak cautioned that Bus 3020, which is providing alternative service on the days Train 20 is not operating from New Orleans to Atlanta will depart stations earlier than the scheduled train times.
