Two North Shore roads win NS short-line awards


Two North Shore Railroad Co.-operated short lines recently won three awards at Norfolk Southern Corp.’s 10th annual short-line meeting, which was held July 10-12 in Roanoke, Va.

The Lycoming Valley Railroad (LVRR) received the “Most Customer Focused” award from NS' metals and construction group, and LVRR and the Bald Eagle Railroad received platinum awards for new business development that generated more than 1,000 carloads. The platinum awards were presented through NS’ “250 Squared” program.

The short lines operate on track owned by the SEDA-COG Joint Rail Authority, which also owns the lines used by North Shore Railroad’s Juniata Valley, North Shore and Shamokin Valley railroads. North Shore’s Union County Industrial Railroad operates on portions of privately owned track and a portion owned by the authority.
