Freight Rail Networks

The movement of propane via domestic freight rail networks, especially during periods of robust demand, is incredibly important. Railroads allow for the bulk transport of our fuel across vast distances. However, like any industry, railroads and their infrastructure are not evenly spread out across the country. Pennsylvania, for example, has more freight railroads in operation (59) than any other state. And Texas has, by far, more rail miles (10,370) than in any other state. The only state not served by freight railroads is Hawaii.

NPGA recently updated its repository of state freight railroad networks that includes information on service carriers, tracks, and terminals. This information is available on the Member Dashboard under the Supply & Logistics tab.
