Grand River Railway Set to Begin Operations



The Grand River Railway is poised to begin hauling salt from a Morton Salt facility near the village of Grand River in Lake County.

The startup-railroad has been rehabilitating about three miles of track that was once mostly owned by the Baltimore & Ohio, although the New York Central actually owned the spur into Morton Salt.

Until it can acquire its own motive power, the GRR has borrowed a locomotive from CSX. On Friday that locomotive was sitting near Grand River.

An online report indicated that CSX has also dropped off some covered hopper cars that the GRR will move to Morton Salt for loading.

The GRR will move the cars to Painesville for interchange with CSX.
