The North Carolina Railroad Company owns and manages the 317-mile rail corridor extending from Morehead City to Charlotte, and related commercial properties. The railroad carries 60-plus freight trains and ten passenger trains daily. Its mission is to maximize the value of the Company’s properties for the people of North Carolina through partnerships that drive economic growth, enhance freight and passenger service, improve safety, and respect the natural environment.

NCRR is the state’s oldest corporation but remains at the forefront of rail improvements and partnership development to promote jobs and rail-served industry across the state.

Freight service on the North Carolina Railroad line is operated by Norfolk Southern Railway under an exclusive trackage rights agreement.  Coal and grain are the main products carried on the line; military equipment, steel, lumber and other products are also transported over the NCRR.

Passenger service from Charlotte to Selma is operated by Amtrak under contract with the N.C. Department of Transportation.
