Ohio Short Line Receives Safety Award

An Ohio short line railroad has been honored for its safety record in 2018.

The Columbus & Ohio River Railroad received one of five President’s Awards from the American Short Line and Regional Railroad Association this week in recognition of an outstanding safety performance in 2018.

The CUOH which is owned by Genesee & Wyoming, was recognized for most hours of injury-free operation.

It operates 277 miles of track in Ohio and interchanges with CSX, Norfolk Southern, Wheeling & Lake Erie, Ohio Central and Ohio Railroad.

Other railroads recognized for the best safety rates in their respective categories included the Union Railroad, more than 500,000 man-hours; Buffalo & Pittsburgh Railroad (which also is owned by G&W), 250,000 to 500,000 man-hours; Winchester & Western, 50,000 to 150,000 man-hours; and Tradepoint Rail, less than 50,000 man-hours.

The awards were presented during ASLRRA’s annual Eastern Region meeting held in Columbus.
