Who would this be replacing at GLC? I know the operations manager was retiring last year.

Wouldn't Lake State Railway fit that definition as well? I know GLC is a bit bigger but they both fit a very similar profile.

Association of America Railroads definition of regional is 350 miles or $40 million annual revenue.
With the lease of the Flint-Plymouth line they may now meet the definition. But likely not on the day when the GLC wrote the job description.

Makes sense, thanks.

The 350-mile number is a bit random, I'm curious how FRA came up with it. From a casual observer, LSR and GLC are pretty similar outfits. They cover a distinct region and are not switching/terminal railroads, not a true short line, and not a national carrier. But I guess they have to draw a line somewhere.

I'm getting bored.

Maybe I should apply.
Apparently, I've been married for 55 years.
