Short line and regional railroads operate 38% of the nation's rail network. For large areas of rural and small town America, short line and regional railroads are the only way shippers can stay connected to the national network, helping businesses and employment stay local.
Rail movement is efficient and cost effective, enabling competitive access to the national and world economy for thousands of companies. One of every four rail cars moving on the national network is handled by a short line, providing the first and last mile for a wide variety of goods from energy products, to industrial products, to finished consumer goods.
