AMERICA’S INTERMODAL SHORTLINE
Massachusetts Central Railroad Corporation (MassCentral) traces its origins back to 1870 and is located in Palmer, Massachusetts. Palmer is known as the town of seven railroads.
The MassCentral has evolved into one of New England’s premier short line carriers. Only 26 miles long from Palmer to South Barre, its strategic location near the center of New England commerce, makes it a major player in rail and Intermodal operations for the Northeast.
INTERMODAL - The intermodal yard is U.S. Customs bonded as a container yard and container freight station. This is one of two yards in Massachusetts that handles double stack traffic from CSX and TOFC from Canadian carriers.
