Our Mission

The NJSLRRA is made up of railroads serving the Great State of New Jersey. The purpose of the Association is to address concerns and problems which face short line railroads and to find the means of mitigate problems and create solutions through collective effort and cooperation.

Association Profile

The NJSLRRA is the association of New Jersey's smaller railroads. We provide freight transportation services that are vital to our customers, who range from small, local firms to Fortune 500 companies. Railroads play a key role in the commerce of New Jersey.

In order to facilitate our mission, our membership also includes Class I railroads that serve New Jersey, as well as suppliers and vendors that are necessary to run our businesses..

Most of our members also belong to the American Short Line and Regional Railroad Association, which is the national association of the smaller railroads in North America. The ASLRRA's web site can be found at .
