Damaged railroad track repaired

ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – A vital railroad track in New Mexico is now back up and running.

A surge of rushing water washed out the earth beneath the Union Pacific mainline in eastern New Mexico between Tucumcari and Santa Rosa.

Rain and flooding washed out the track Monday.

After round the clock work, Union Pacific says all the repairs are done and trains are now running on the tracks.

It’s an important line for freight trains carrying goods from El Paso to Kansas.
