The Nittany & Bald Eagle Railroad Wins the American Short Line and Regional Railroad Association (ASLRRA) 2016 Marketing Award in a Joint Effort with the Buffalo & Pittsburgh Railroad.

WASHINGTON, DC – We recently received this notice from ASLRRA’s AVP Jenny Bourque:
Congratulations! I am pleased to tell you that the Buffalo & Pittsburgh Railroad/Nittany & Bald Eagle Railroad entry is one of the three winners of the 2016 ASLRRA Marketing Awards Competition. This is a wonderful accomplishment and one of which you and everyone at the railroads should be especially proud. Our judges all commented on the exceptional quality of this year’s entries. To rank among the top three submissions says a great deal about the marketing brainpower at work at your operations.
This award was resultant of Nittany & Bald Eagle Railroad’s (NBER) joint entry with the Buffalo & Pittsburgh Railroad (BPRR)/Genesee & Wyoming (G&W) marketing team honoring the recent development of rail movements between Graymont Lime on NBER and the Homer City Generating Station on BPRR. It is a bit unusual for two separate short line railroads to do a joint entry for a single project but this project demonstrated the cooperation that we eagerly participate in to capture new business! Thank you to the G&W Marketing team (Kevin Bowser and Ryan Fisher) and others who assisted in developing this new business and with the entry submission and thank you to the ASLRRA.

Our mission at the North Shore Railroad Company is to be the most customer focused and safest transportation system possible, provide quality regional rail freight service to customers in Central Pennsylvania, conduct our business with the highest degree of integrity and professionalism, and be responsible civic partners with the communities we serve. Our six short lines are the Juniata Valley Railroad, the Lycoming Valley Railroad, the Nittany & Bald Eagle Railroad, the North Shore Railroad, the Shamokin Valley Railroad, and the Union County Industrial Railroad.
