San Pedro & Southwestern begins serving central Arizona industrial park


Yesterday, San Pedro & Southwestern Railroad (SPSR) began serving the Central Arizona Commerce Park in Casa Grande, Ariz. The short line delivered a box car of newsprint for the park’s first customer, Casa Grande Valley Newspapers.

Since 2009, SPSR has been under contract with developers to link the 580-acre industrial park with the Union Pacific Railroad mainline.

Headquartered in Benson, Ariz., SPSR was founded in 2003, when it was acquired by ARG Trans from RailAmerica Inc. SPSR interchanges with UP in Benson, Willcox and Casa Grande, Ariz., and provides transload facilities at all of its operating locations. ARG Trans also operates the Coos Bay Rail Link in southwestern Oregon.
