Industrial Development

 

Are you looking at expanding or developing a new rail-serviced facility?  You can rely on the team at Modesto and Empire Traction Company and Beard Land Improvement Company to help guide you through all aspects of expanding or developing a new site.

Developing a Rail-Served Facility

Want to develop direct rail access?  There are a few basic approaches available:

  • Building or refurbishing a facility in an existing site or rail-served industrial park.
  • Building a spur or siding at a new or existing site.

Modesto and Empire Traction Company has connections with two Class I railroads, BNSF Railway (BNSF) and Union Pacific (UP).  Our connection with the BNSF at Modesto-Empire Jct., California, is at our eastern-most location, while our connection with UP takes place within a few blocks of downtown Modesto.  We reach all of the rail network in the United States, Canada, and Mexico through our connections with BNSF and UP.  Additionally, Modesto and Empire Traction Company has available a 70 acre rail / truck transload facility encompassing 7,000 feet of unloading / loading tracks.  These tracks are surrounded by 52' to 78' concrete aprons.  The facility offers full security lighting and fencing, as well as a single location access with checkpoint office.
