Anacostia Rail Holdings installs Micklos, Lurkins in short-line management posts

Anacostia Rail Holdings Inc. on Monday announced two additions to the management teams at the company's Pacific Harbor Line Inc. (PHL) and Louisville & Indiana Railroad (LIRC) subsidiaries.

Anacostia appointed Daniel Micklos vice president at PHL. He formerly was director of train operations for CSX Transportation in Indianapolis.

Micklos previously held other management posts at CSX, including superintendent of train operations in Selkirk, N.Y., and Chicago. Prior to joining the Class I, he served Conrail and Union Railroad in a variety of management positions, including terminal superintendent and trainmaster.

Anacostia also named Scott Lurkins manager of sales and marketing at LIRC. He previously served as industrial development director for the Illinois Western Railroad and economic development director for the city of Greenville, Ill. Lurkins in the past worked closely with CSX to designate Greenville’s industrial Park as one of the Class I's “Select Sites."

Micklos' and Lurkins' skills and varied experience will help strengthen the company's management team, said Anacostia Chairman Peter Gilbertson in a press release.

Anacostia also owns and operates the Chicago South Shore & South Bend Railroad, Gulf Coast Switching Co. Inc., New York & Atlantic Railway and Northern Lines Railway.
