R&N to Supply Cars for Export Coal to Ukraine

Pennsylvania-based Reading & Northern said it will be supplying the cars to be used by Xcoal Energy and Resources to ship 700,000 tons of coal for energy production in Ukraine.

Half the tonnage will be Pennsylvania anthracite shipped from mines served by R&N. Reading Anthracite Coal of Pottsville has handled the acquisition of the 350,000 tons of anthracite,

The coal being exported will supply Ukraine’s state-owned power company for winter heating of homes and businesses.

The R&N will serve at up to six loading points in order to build the more than 100 car unit trains that Norfolk Southern will pick up at Reading, Pennsylvania.
