Freight train derailment alters TEXRail service

UPDATE: 3 p.m. Thursday, April 13, 2023

 Trinity Metro TEXRail has resumed regular operations and the planned bus connections during the service disruption will no longer be needed. All trains are operating on normal schedules between Fort Worth T&P Station and DFW Airport Terminal B Station.

“We worked collaboratively to return to regular service in a safe and timely manner,” said Jon-Erik “AJ” Arjanen, vice president of rail. “Safety is always paramount to our operations and procedures to provide the best service for our customers and employees.”

UPDATE: 11:15 a.m. Thursday, April 13, 2023

Trinity Metro has resumed operating TEXRail along the full route between Fort Worth T&P Station and DFW Airport Terminal B Station on an hourly schedule. While repairs related to the freight train derailment continue, TEXRail will operate on an hourly schedule because of speed restrictions.

When service returns to every 30 minutes mid-afternoon, TEXRail anticipates implementing bus service again between North Side Station, Fort Worth Central Station and Fort Worth T&P Station. More updates will be provided if additional service changes occur.

Earlier message: 5:37 a.m. Thursday, April 13, 2023

Because of a freight train derailment on an adjacent track early this morning, TEXRail trains are unable to operate safely between North Side Station and Fort Worth T&P Station. To help passengers travel between those stations and Fort Worth Central Station, Trinity Metro has implemented bus service until full train service can resume. In the meantime, all eastbound trains will start at North Side Station and all westbound trains will end at North Side Station. Passengers should not experience any significant delays.
