Pennsylvania rail authority opens bulk terminal


The Pennsylvania Northeast Regional Railroad Authority (PNRRA) and Linde Corp. recently established a bulk rail distribution terminal in Carbondale, Pa., at the site of the former Delaware & Hudson Carbondale Yards.

The facility will be served by PNRRA’s contract rail operator, the Delaware-Lackawanna Railroad, which interchanges with Canadian Pacific and Norfolk Southern Railway.

“This facility will be available to many industries in northeastern Pennsylvania that are not directly served by rail,” said PNRRA President Larry Malski in a prepared statement.

In addition, the authority plans to launch a tie replacement project on the Delaware-Lackawanna’s Carbondale mainline within the next four months. PNRRA obtained a Rail Freight Assistance Grant from the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation’s Bureau of Rail Freight to help fund the project, which calls for installing about 7,000 ties.
