Torres and BRG earned OmniTRAX’s Railroad of the Year Award in 2021 for producing 25% year-over-year carload growth that resulted in a nearly 20% increase in revenue, and for having no FRA-reportable derailments since 2002. She identified market needs, and to support growth, deployed capital projects and doubled the workforce. She also headed an effort to donate a former BRG caboose and turn it into a children’s library in Brownsville, Tex.
