Nevada Freight Rail
The vision for freight rail transportation in Nevada is to have an economically-competitive freight rail system that moves goods efficiently and expeditiously across the state.
A fully integrated freight rail system with interstate and intrastate shipping modes will help ease highway congestion and improve the overall safety and quality of life for the traveling public and the citizens of Nevada. The primary transporters of freight by rail in Nevada are BNSF and UPRR.
