BROWNSVILLE & RIO GRANDE INTERNATIONAL RAILWAY, LLC
The Brownsville & Rio Grande International Railway, LLC (“BRG”) is a short line railroad, organized for the purpose of providing exclusive common carrier rail transportation to all facilities located within the Brownsville Navigation District of Cameron County, Texas. The Railroad is operating on behalf of the Brownsville Navigation District, under separate management and control from the District. All traffic is interchanged with the Union Pacific Railroad at the Olmito yard. Interchange with the Mexican Railroad carrier KCSM is done via an intermediate UP switch at the Brownsville & International Matamoros Bridge.
BRG operates 45 miles of line at the Port of Brownsville, and interchanges with Union Pacific and KCSM. BRG traffic includes steel, agricultural products, food products, and general commodities. The BRG commenced operations in 1984 when the Brownsville Navigation District (BND) reclaimed Port railroad operations from the Missouri Pacific Railroad. In June of 2014, The BND, which manages the Port of Brownsville, entered a 30-year agreement with OmniTRAX to operate and expand the business development capabilities of the Brownsville & Rio Grande International Railway on its behalf. The Port of Brownsville currently has 40,000 acres of land available for development.
