This track work will also impact the timetables of two trains that pass through North Carolina between the Northeast and Florida and Georgia – the Silver Star and the Palmetto.

The northbound Silver Star will depart Miami, Fla. four hours later than normal on Sunday through Wednesday during the track work period.  The Silver Star makes stops in Cary, Raleigh, and Rocky Mount during its run through North Carolina.  During the track work, the train will also stop in Wilson, N.C.  The train will depart Miami on its normal schedule Thursday through Saturday.

The Palmetto provides daily service between New York and Savannah.  The southbound Palmetto will depart Richmond, Virginia an hour later than its normal time Monday through Thursday during the track work.  This will impact scheduled arrivals and departures in the North Carolina towns of Rocky Mount, Wilson, and Selma.  The southbound Palmetto will operate on its normal schedule Friday through Sunday.
