ST. LOUIS – May 2, 2022 – The American Short Line and Regional Railroad Association (ASLRRA) has announced its selection of two individuals for their decades-long dedication to railroad safety. ASLRRA is pleased to honor Nathaniel Mazo, General Manager, Ohio Division, OmniTRAX as the Safety Person of the Year, and Ross Grantham, Chief Operating Officer, Pioneer Lines as the Safety Professional of the Year. The awards were presented today at ASLRRA’s Annual Conference & Exhibition in St. Louis, Missouri.
ST. LOUIS – May 2, 2022 – As the supply chain continued to experience pandemic-related disruptions through 2021, short line railroads sought ways to capitalize on opportunities presented in the wake of truck driver shortages, changing customer buying patterns, and manufacturers challenged to keep plants running in the face of uncertain supply. From a strong field of submissions, the American Short Line and Regional Railroad Association (ASLRRA) has selected three 2022 Business Development Award winners: the Allegheny Valley Railroad, CRANDIC Rail, and the Union County Industrial Railroad. These member railroads were honored for creative use of their unique operations to deliver value to shippers; utilizing partnerships with development authorities, Class 1s, and shippers to capture business opportunities; and driving economic success for shippers and the communities they serve. The awards were presented at ASLRRA’s Conference & Exhibition in St. Louis, Missouri.
WASHINGTON, April 18, 2022 - ASLRRA provided a written response to the Washington State Utilities and Transportation Commission's rulemaking seeking to implement House Bill 1841, "Minimum Crew Size on Certain Trains," urging the Commission to withdraw its rulemaking. ASLRRA stated that the rulemaking is preempted by the ICC Termination Act of 1995, and detailed additional concerns with the rulemaking for short line railroads. ASLRRA member Genesee & Wyoming also submitted comments on behalf of its three short line railroads in the state.
