New Transloading Terminal


RR101619 RailtoRoadLogoOct. 16, 2019 – Local Chamber of Commerce representatives conducted a ribbon cutting at a new Rail to Road transloading agate terminal southwest of Worthington, Minn., according to The Globe. Operational since late April, the transloading facility brings in rail cars from the Union Pacific and Ellis & Eastern railways on a pair of 1,250-ft. rail spurs. Clark Meyer, president of Rail to Road Inc., said that most of the product brought in by rail during the past five months has been portland cement. The transloading facility features a loading pit, bucket elevator (augering system) and three overhead silos that each hold 300 tons of product. Once the rail cars are unloaded, semi tractor-trailers arrive to pick up the product and deliver it to area businesses. Dan Kippley, economic and business development director for Rail to Road, said each rail car holds the equivalent of about four semi trailer loads of material.
