Railmark Named Operator, Developer of Tishomingo County Mississippi Rail Line

Railmark Industrial Railway Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Railmark Holdings, Inc., has been named the new operator and developer for the 11-mile industrial rail line in Tishomingo County, Mississippi.

The line interchanges with the Norfolk Southern Railroad and the Tenn-Tom Waterway via barge port.

Railmark’s landmark strategy involves integrating road, barge, and rail transportation to develop a critical corridor with access to international shipping routes. Railmark will also establish its eighth Rail Service Center there, offering its best-in-class rail services in logistics, mechanical and track maintenance services, as well as providing local training and employment opportunities.

The rail line, originally constructed in 1982 for NASA, is located within a substantial industrial park and, with restoration and upgrades by Railmark, is expected to play a pivotal role in local and regional economic development. Railmark will also collaborate with Tishomingo County to further develop rail-industrial opportunities and implement long-term economic development strategies as part of this new partnership.

“This is a landmark moment for Tishomingo County as we engage with Railmark to elevate our industrial infrastructure to global standards,” Michael Busby, chairman of Tishomingo County’s Board of Supervisors, said. “The integration of road, barge, and rail operations to our 3,700+ acre industrial park will not only enhance our area’s logistical capabilities but also open up new avenues for economic growth and international trade.”
