U.S. Rail Corporation (reporting mark USRC) is a family-owned short-line railroad operating the Winamac Southern Railway in Indiana.

Operation[edit]

Kokomo[edit]

The Kokomo division, in Kokomo, Indiana, operates a line for the Kokomo Grain Company and Winamac Southern Railway, transporting grain and serving the communities of Amboy, Marion, Converse, Sweetser, Galveston, Walton, Logansport, Clymers, Camden, Flora and Bringhurst. It interchanges with Norfolk Southern in Marion and Clymers, Indiana, Toledo, Peoria & Western in Logansport, and Central Railroad of Indianapolis in Kokomo, Indiana.

In October 2012, it was announced that U.S. Rail, Kokomo Grain and Norfolk Southern would rehabilitate 12 miles of the former Tipton-Peru line from Kokomo to Tipton, Indiana to interchange with Norfolk Southern there. This allows Kokomo Grain a shorter route to Indianapolis and markets south.[1]
