Welcome to the Texas Short Line and Regional Railroad Association (TSLRRA) website. Short line railroads play an important role in the overall transportation picture in Texas, and we are pleased that you have taken the time to learn more about our industry. From Houston to Dumas, from Dallas to Brownsville, short line railroads haul a wide variety of products: everything from imported goods in containers to agricultural commodities, bulk petroleum products, to finished goods and chemicals. Often locally owned and operated, short line railroads are an integral part of the local communities through which they operate.
This website provides current information and periodic announcements concerning the short line railroad industry in Texas: railroad statistics, company contact information, legislative updates, and announcements concerning upcoming special events or meetings. We encourage you to bookmark this site and check back often. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or comments.
Paul Treangen, TSLRRA President
