BIP Receives Railway Age 2021 Honorable Mention for Short Line Railroad of the Year
From Railway Age:
Railway Age is recognizing the R.J. Corman Railroad Company/Memphis Line (RJCM) as its Short Line Railroad of the Year, and Lake State Railroad (LSRC) as its Regional Railroad of the Year for 2021. The Belpre Industrial Parkersburg (BIP) Railroad and Grenada Railroad each earned a Short Line Honorable Mention.
The awards will be presented at the American Short Line and Regional Railroad Association (ASLRRA) Annual Conference & Exhibition in Phoenix, Ariz., Nov. 17-19, 2021. All honorees will be featured in Railway Age’s November 2021 issue.
“Short line and regional railroads are helping to drive recovery from the pandemic,” Railway Age Executive Editor Marybeth Luczak said. “The business opportunities and obstacles—in terms of reach or of geography or product movement—may differ. But the entrepreneurial spirit of our honorees impacts customers large and small, making efficient business, and business growth, possible with the most efficient surface transport mode: rail. Railway Age Publisher Jonathan Chalon, Editor-in-Chief William C. Vantuono and I congratulate them, and all of our nearly 30 strong finalists this year.”
