FLORA –CSX Railroad has temporarily shut down the rail line running through Flora, sending a crew Friday morning to cut the line west of Flora, making the tracks unusable.

The cut, just west of the Hanging Rock Crossing south of the old Lincoln Grade School, was reportedly made due to a lack of business on the line, which runs from St. Louis to Cincinnati.

However, rail officials say that if new contracts can be obtained along the line, it could be reopened in a short period of time.
