WASHOUT ON THE LINE.

The recent rains in the West Midlands have washed out piers of Lamington Viaduct, on the West Coast Main Line.  A shuttle service for passengers is available, on an alternate, but slower, rail line between Carlisle and Glasgow.  The freight service is also detouring.

Flood season on the Mississippi River has posed similar challenges for railroads in my back yard.
