R&N To Take Ownership of Industry Park Track

Reading Blue Mountain & Northern will on Jan. 1, 2016, become the owner of the track of a Hazleton, Pennsylvania, industrial park.

The short line acquired the Humboldt Industrial Park track from CAN DO, Inc., and agreed to provide rail service as well as maintain the park’s 7.5 miles of track.

The original agreement called for R&N to assume ownership of the industrial park track at the end of 2016, but recent talks resulted in the ownership transfer date being moved up.

R&N will offer scheduled service to the industrial park and additional rail switching when business warrants it.

The railroad also will offer rail-car storage and personalized service for each customer.

“Each customer will have their own local account representative who can assist them with all their rail needs and any issues that arise,” said R&N President Wayne Michel.
