Michigan Short Line Being Sold

A Michigan short line railroad is being sold.

Mark W. Dobronski, president of the Adrian & Blissfield Rail Road, recently informed employees that the sale will occur this summer, subject to regulatory approval.

The new operator of the 20-mile short line in Lenawee County will be a startup firm named Transportation Holdings and led by Christopher Bagwell.

The A&B will be this new company’s first acquisition. Dobronski said the jobs of current workers are secure. 

“ADBF will continue to be ADBF,” he told employees. “While there will be some inevitable changes, such as new officers and directors of ADBF, Holdings has made clear to me that they consider the existing ADBF employees to be essential to the continued operations of ADBF — indeed, ADBF’s employees are deemed to be one of its greatest assets.”
