BNSF adds second mainline track at Pecos River
A BNSF intermodal train crosses the newly installed second mainline track spanning the Pecos River in Fort Sumner, N.M. With a route that covers more than 2,200 miles, this new three miles of second track moves this important Southern Transcon corridor ever closer to being completely double-tracked. Just four miles of single track remain on this route connecting the West Coast to major intermodal markets such as Chicago, Dallas/Fort Worth and Kansas City. And like this newly completed section in Fort Sumner, the remaining four miles require two new bridges to be built. More track means more capacity for BNSF customers.
