Western Carolina Railway Service Corporation is a privately held South Carolina corporation organized in 2003 for the purpose of preserving, restoring, and revitalizing rail service in both South and North Carolina. The Corporation’s mission is threefold:
As our communities grow, this growth hampers the availability of right of way on which to build new railroad. It is for this reason it is imperative for our corporation to have the foresight to protect existing infrastructure and restore defunct infrastructure before the very growth that drives our economy is hampered by an inability to move goods and provide services in a given area.
Western Carolina Railway Service Corporation is committed to providing freight and transit rail services to the Carolinas through the next century and beyond. You can learn more about what America's freight rail network can do for you through the Association of American Railroads' Freight Rail Works campaign.
Remember... America's railroads can move one ton of freight 469* miles on just one gallon of fuel! If just 10 percent of long-distance freight that currently moves by highway switched to rail, national fuel savings would exceed one billion gallons a year and annual greenhouse gas emissions would fall by some 12 million tons.
