COVID-19 Update

March 18, 2020

To all of our valued customers and business partners:

In this time of uncertainty, The New York, Susquehanna and Western Railway Corporation ("NYS&W") and affiliates remains committed to continuing to provide the service our customers require, and also to providing open and frequent communication regarding the potential impact of the COVID-19 virus on our operations. As you know, the situation regarding the virus is evolving, with significant developments nationally and regionally seeming to come daily.

NYS&W has implemented common sense procedures, applicable to both train operations and facility operations based upon recommended practices issued by the CDC and other governmental authorities. These include increasing the frequency of facility cleaning, including disinfecting common surfaces in both buildings and equipment, providing employees personal disinfectant supplies for use in the workplace, social distancing, more closely monitoring employee health, providing current information to our employees on best practices to avoid the virus, encouraging employees with symptoms or known exposure to self-quarantine, and requiring employees with symptoms to stay home.

At this time, our operations have not been impacted and there are no anticipated changes in service. In order to help us remain effective and efficient, we ask that we be given as much advance notice if your rail service needs change. In particular, NYS&W has the capacity to store a significant number of railcars should the need arise, but such is best accomplished with advance notice and planning.

As always, please feel free to contact us should you have any questions or concerns.

Nathan R. Fenno, President
