As is common with shortline railroads, we cannot fully predict our operations a significant time in advance. Our operations are dependent upon the demands of our customers, and as a result can vary from day to day. We can, however, try and explain the tendancies for each line and the trains that operate on them.

Also included below, is a company locomotive roster.



Snow Hill Line

Snow Hill Line operations are based out of Selbyville, De, where MDDE train crews are on duty as required, typically between 0600 and 0700 ET. The line begins at the NS interchange in Frankford and continues southward 26 miles through the stations of Selbyville, Bishop, Showell, Berlin, Ironshire, Newark, Basket Switch and Snow Hill.

Customers on the Snow Hill Line include Pep-Up in Selbyville and Tyson Foods in Snow Hill.

Current motive power on the line, but subject to change, is CF7 2628.

 

Seaford Line

Seaford Line operations are based out of Federalsburg, Md, where MDDE train crews are on duty as required, typically between 0600 and 0700. The line begins as a continuation of the NS Cambridge Industrial Track west of Seaford, De, and continues westward 31 miles through the stations of Oak Grove, Federalsburg, WIlliamsburg, Hurlock, East New Market, Linkwood and Cambridge.

Customers on the Seaford Line include Reliance Wood, Dart Container, Crop Production Services, Southern States and B&G Foods in Federalsburg, Tri-Gas & Oil in Williamsburg and Perdue in Hurlock.

Current motive power on the line, but subject to change, is RS3M 1203 or SW900 801.
 
 

Centreville Line

Centreville Line operations are based out of Massey, Md, where MDDE train crews are on duty as required, typically between 0600 and 0700 ET. The line itself begins at the NS interchange in Townsend, De, and continues southward 31 miles through the stations of Golts, Massey, Millington, Sudlersville, Barclay, Roberts, Price and Carville. The majority of MDDE operations on the Centreville Line occur between Townsend and Massey, as the connection to the Chestertown Line is at Massey and all traffic operating on the Chestertown Line must use the Centreville Line to access NS interchange, thus increasing the corridor's usage.

Customers on the Centreville Line include Wenger Feeds in Massey, Harbor Sales in Sudlersville, Perdue in Roberts, as well as Crop Production Services, Southern States and Tidewater Direct at Carville. Of note, Millington Hill, which lasts for 1 mile of 1% grade in its namesake town, is the steepest and longest mainline grade on Delmarva.

Current motive power on the line, but subject to change, is RS3Ms 1201 and 1202.
 
 

Chestertown Line

Chestertown Line operations are based out of Massey, Md, where MDDE train crews are on duty as required, typically between 0600 and 0700 ET. The line begins at the connection to the Centreville Line in Massey and continues westward 17 miles through the stations of Blacks, Kennedyville, Lynch and Worton.

Customers on the Chestertown Line include Perdue and Willards Agri-Service at Lynch, as well as Crop Production Services and Eastman Specialties at Worton.

Current motive power on the line, but subject to change, is RS3Ms 1201 and 1202.
