We Interchange With

The Central Bradford Progress Authority named Lehigh Railway LLC (LRWY)  the 2009 Business of the Year award at it's annual meeting of April 16, 2010 at the Towanda Country Club.  Mr. Paul E. Kreischer, President of the authority, presented the award to Mr. Steve May, President of LRWY, saying "...One thing I want all of us to remember is that modern rail systems ... really can act as an attractor to future industry after this gas play has calmed down a bit and so on. It's going to help us attract heavy industry, which in this region has been a key to this area's success."

Tony Ventello, authority executive director, also addressed the railway in his remarks at the meeting.  "One of the things that's really exciting in the area ... is railroad activity," he said. "Our rail has laid dormant - I can't tell you - the last 20-25 years. We had very little activity on the Norfolk line." He said Lehigh has revitalized the railroad, however. "Any rail-served property is at a premium right now, mainly related to the gas industry," he said. "...It's going to help us reduce truck traffic, which is probably the biggest impact we have going on here right now."

Lehigh Railway wishes to thank the Progress Authority and looks forward to continued work with the Authority.
