Grenada Railroad

The Grenada Railroad LLC (GRYR) serves North Central Mississippi and operates 180 miles of track along the I-55 corridor between  Jackson, MS and Memphis, TN. The railroad’s dedicated management and work force offers the timely and flexible service demanded by today’s fast paced supply chains, while offering the inherent economies of scale shipping by rail provides.

The line, which was targeted for abandonment by its previous owners in 2011, supports 11,174 jobs, $1.3 billion in gross product, and $1 billion in personal income, according to a study commissioned by the Mississippi Development Authority and the Mississippi Department of Transportation. The State of Mississippi leased the line to RailUSA in August 2018.

The entire line is undergoing a rehabilitation project with the goal of upgrade the entire track to Class 3 (40 MPH) operating standards and the industry standard 286,000 lbs. bridge capacity by mid-2019. The $15.05 million project is being supported with $7.54 million Infrastructure for Rebuilding America (“INFRA”) Grant, a $4 Million load from the state of Mississippi along with RailUSA investing the required matching funds.

Available along the railroad are over 2,500 acres of certified industrial sites and over 4,000 additional acres of developable property all located close to the interstate highway system. The railroad operates a fleet of eight (8) Electro-Motive locomotives, along with a fleet of 147 box cars and 175 center-beam flat cars. Safety is of course the most important part of any rail operation and we pride ourselves on setting the standard for safety and performance.
