Jackson, Miss. Amtrak says passenger train service throughout a portion of the Southeast will be disrupted because of rail line maintenance.

Amtrak says trains that typically run from New York to New Orleans will not operate between Atlanta and New Orleans on several days in January and February.

Amtrak says the southbound train, which starts in New York City, will go only as far as Atlanta during the maintenance days.

Amtrak says service will not be provided between Atlanta; Anniston, Birmingham and Tuscaloosa in Alabama; Meridian, Laurel, Hattiesburg and Picayune in Mississippi; and Slidell and New Orleans in Louisiana.

The northbound train will originate in Atlanta and go to New York City.

The maintenance dates are Jan. 6-9; Jan. 20-23; Jan. 27-30; and Feb. 3-6.
