Vermilion Valley Railroad History

The Vermilion Valley Railroad operates and maintains approximately 6 miles of track between Danville, Illinois and Olin, Indiana. The primary interchange point to the nationwide rail network is with CSX Transportation at Danville, Illinois. VVRR provides service to locations that accommodate large-scale logistics projects involving rail-truck transloading of dimensional loads and other products. In addition, VVRR operates a full-service locomotive shop, which performs heavy maintenance on locomotives used by Indiana Boxcar Corporation railroads, as well as third parties that lease locomotives for service elsewhere. Service is flexible, and significant acreage is available along the tracks for development.

The railroad interchanges with CSX and Union Pacific in Danville, Illinois.
