Our Mission

At Blacklands Railroad, we pride ourselves in providing on-demand customer service. In addition to our 24/7 switching operation, we work with customers to provide transportation solutions that will bring value to their business. We offer a wide range of services including locomotive repair, rail car repair, transloading, fleet tracking, and transportation solution consulting.

About Us

We began operations in 1999 with Blacklands Railroad, which is headquartered in Sulphur Springs, TX (East of Dallas/Fort Worth). With just a few hundred rail cars per year, our vision was to provide excellent customer service in all aspects of our business and we have since grown to move thousands of rail cars per year.

As our business has grown, we have expanded to serve four different locations across Texas, and most recently Northern Nevada. We offer railcar and locomotive repair, railcar storage, and through our subsidiary Black Gold Terminals, a premier transloading service that provides customers with on-demand switching, loading, and unloading.
