Rail

Our region is served by Union Pacific, BNSF, and the Canadian Pacific, connecting us to virtually all parts of the continental U.S.  There is easy, efficient access to interstate and barge transport throughout the area.

The Lincolnway Industrial Rail and Air Park is located just minutes west of the City of Clinton. The Union Pacific Railroad directly serves the site off the northern east-west mainline between Chicago and the west coast. Recently, RAIL.ONE, a German manufacturer of rail ties, located its first North American facility in the rail park.

New rail-served intermodal facilities are currently being planned or underway in Silvis, Rochelle and Joliet, Illinois, (within 100 miles of the region). These new terminals will reposition the region closer to the center of North American intermodal traffic that provides service to all North American markets and east and west coast ports.
