Who We Are

Red River Valley & Western Railroad began operations on July 19th, 1987 over track acquired from the Burlington Northern Railroad. Since then, RRVW has experienced solid growth in terms of freight volume, employment and physical improvements. We operate over 500 miles of track that provides local freight services used for transporting grain, fuel and fertilizer that can accommodate up to 286,000 pound rail cars. RRVW’s ongoing effort to expand and find new markets for customers has brought new business to the railroad. RRVW presently serves more than 60 customers, including 9-grain shuttle facilities, 33 grain elevators and a number of processors.

We are now in our 30th year of service and have just recently celebrated the transfer of our millionth carload. We celebrate this achievement not only because it reflects the success of our company but also the growth of our surrounding communities. We not only provide services to our community members that no other local service does, but we also have doubled our number of employees since our inauguration. RRVW assists in the development of our community on a multitude of different levels, but it is the support of our community that assists in the growth of our business.

We thank our customers, employees and public officials who have helped make RRVW a remarkable success! The future looks bright! As the agricultural community continues to grow, we will continue to meet the demands while providing dependable and quality service.
