Blacklands Railroad Opens Transloading and Storage Terminal in Nevada

According to Progressive Railroads, a Blacklands Railroad subsidiary has opened a transloading and storage terminal at the Northern Nevada Railport and Logistics Center in Fernley, Nevada, the Northern Nevada Development Authority (NNDA) announced Wednesday, May 16, 2018.

The subsidiary, Black Gold Rail Terminals: Northern Nevada, will help the short line meet its intermodal, logistics and distribution needs in a cost-effective manner, according to an NNDA press release.

Currently, Sulphur Springs, Texas-based Blacklands Railroad is investing $1 million for additional track and a locomotive, NNDA officials said. It is the first short line to establish a transloading and storage terminal in northern Nevada.

Located on Reno Highway, the terminal is served by Union Pacific Railroad and BNSF Railway Co. Rail service at the terminal is available five days a week.

“Establishing a Black Gold Rail Terminal in Fernley was a good fit as Northern Nevada’s logistics industry is quickly expanding to meet multimodal shipping and distribution needs of customers nationwide,” said Blacklands Railroad President Wayne Defebaugh.

NNDA President and Chief Executive Officer Robert Hooper said Blacklands Railroad marks the 100th company since 2010 that the authority has assisted with expansion or relocation.
