Carload Express Inc. marked a safety milestone last week when its three operating railroad subsidiaries each achieved three years without a personal injury as defined by the Federal Railroad Administration (FRA).

Carload owns and operates three short lines: the Allegheny Valley Railroad and Southwest Pennsylvania Railroad serving western Pennsylvania, and the Delmarva Central Railroad serving Delaware, Maryland and Virginia on the Delmarva Peninsula.

Together, the company and its 100 employees operate 24 hours per day, seven days per week, serving about 100 customers on 331 route miles of track.

"This milestone is a significant accomplishment for our company and all of our employees," said President and Chief Executive Officer Mark Rosner in a press release. "We are especially proud that all three of our railroads have reached this goal."

Each employee received a safety dividend in appreciation for their contribution.
