The North Carolina Railroad: Collaborating with Communities and Spurring Economic Growth

Today is NCRR Charter day. Our charter, signed in 1849, outlined a need to connect the state from "east to west." We're proud to say our 317-mile rail corridor helps move people and freight east to west AND north to south. Don't worry, we'll keep exceeding expectations.

The weight ratio between a car and a soda can is about 4,000 to 1. The weight ratio between the average freight train and an average family-sized car is also 4,000 to 1. When a car hits a soda can, the can is destroyed. Don't be the soda can. #STOPTrackTragedies

Did you know U.S. railroads, on average, move one ton of freight nearly 500 miles on just one gallon of fuel? That's about four times more efficient at hauling freight than a truck. So, who's interested in learning more about using rail for your freight shipping needs?
