G&W Plans 2 Ohio Capital Projects in 2022

Short line holding company Genesee & Wyoming plans two major capital projects in Ohio this year, Trains magazine reported on its website.

G&W has received a $7.8 million grant that will be used to make improvements in Delta on the Indiana & Ohio.

The work includes installing 40,000 feet of rail, 1,5000 ties, 10 miles of surfacing, 10 turnouts, and a 7,450-foot siding.

In Lima on the Chicago, Fort Wayne & Eastern, G&W will undertake a $9 million project to install 10.85 miles of welded rail at eight locations, and reconfigure a yard.

In all, G&W plans to spend $375 million in North America this year for capital projects, which railroad officials said is the highest capital spending figure in any of the past six years.

Much of that work will involve ties and rail for 900,000 ties and 336 miles of rail.
