Freight Services

The Strasburg Rail Road Company is America’s oldest short line railroad, incorporated in 1832. From our inception, we have served the surrounding farming community with affordable rail transport. If it is shipped by rail, we can get it for you.

Our specialties include railcar-to-truck transfer of grains, bulk feed additives, dry fertilizers, lumber, steel, bedding, and bio-fuel. We are also able to handle bulk transfers from truck-to-railcar.

Our customers enjoy public team track access. Some of our most loyal customers are not located along the rail network and yet regularly take advantage of the prices and ladings available only by rail. Our public tracks have a general cargo dock for unloading of sensitive shipments requiring box cars. There is room and storage for lumber products and other products that are not weather-sensitive.

We are also able to handle the transloading of liquid products that travel by tank car. Your product may be pumped alongside into your truck, or from your truck into a tank car.

We also handle those questions and perform the research for your prospective rail shipment neighborhood freight agents used to perform on a daily basis.
