The Pioneer Valley Railroad is a service driven, customer-oriented short line railroad operating in western Massachusetts. Formed in 1982, the PVRR directly serves industries, warehouse operations and transload facilities in the cities of Westfield and Holyoke, MA. The Pioneer Valley Railroad enjoys daily interchanges with CSXT in Westfield.
The Pioneer Valley Railroad provides a high level of customer service offering multiple switches per day. Safety is always a high priority at PVRR as indicated by the ASLRRA Jake Award with Distinction over the years.
Innovation and creativity are essential ingredients in PVRR’s Marketing & Sales efforts. We enjoy a long record of success helping our customers even in the face of daunting marketplace obstacles. An example of this is the work it did with Yankee Candle that earned an ASLRRA Marketing Award.
In order to allow the many local industries that do not have direct rail access to take advantage of the railroad’s service, the Pioneer Valley Railroad offers various transloading-storage-truck delivery programs for a variety of packaged and bulk commodities. The Pioneer Valley Railroad enjoys a unique relationship with its sister company, Railroad Distribution Services of Massachusetts, which provides a wide range of warehousing and transload services.
