Railway Age magazine has named Blacklands Railroad the 2011 Short Line Railroad of the Year, and the Reading & Northern Railroad its 2011 Regional Railroad of the Year.
The awards will be presented at the American Short Line and Regional Railroad Association’s annual meeting in San Antonio, Tex., Tuesday evening, May 3, 2011.
“This year’s two winners demonstrate that short line and regional railroads are making their impact felt across the United States,” says Railway Age Publisher Robert P. DeMarco. “The business opportunities differ, but the entrepreneurial spirit of the two winners is a shared belief in the economic power and potential railroads of all sizes can offer.”
Both Blacklands Railroad, the Short Line Railroad of the Year, and the Reading & Northern Railroad, the Regional Railroad of the Year, will be featured in Railway Age’s April 2011 issue.
