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

Big news! 2022 was a record-breaking year for passenger rail in NC. Trains carried a record 522.5k people, surpassing the pre-pandemic record from 2014 of 481.5k travelers. We're excited to see more people using such a great resource in our state!

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
