The Operating Department is responsible for the safe and efficient transportation of our customer’s freight.

Our Operating professionals carry on a full range of tasks to accomplish our mission: from scheduling trains, optimizing movement and distribution of loaded and empty freight cars, and protecting perishable freight in winter and summer, to running the trains, distributing motive power, and conducting crew training and continuing education.

The Middle Division, under direction of its Superintendent and sub-division supervisors, is responsible for the day-to-day operation of the railroad. The Division has a staff of dispatchers, tower operators, yardmasters, road foremen, station agents, and operating personnel: engineers, firemen, conductors, brakemen and switchmen.

All of our personnel are professionals whose mission is customer satisfaction.
