“Our plan is to consolidate the smaller and sometimes overlooked short lines and passenger excursions and consolidate them under the United Rail Inc. banner,” said Michael Barron, CEO of United Rail Inc.

Lou Schillinger, President of USIS and the new President of United Rail Inc., added, “Our insurance products are tailored to the short line railroad industry and many of the smaller companies in this space are already clients of USIS.  This will give us a leg up on contacting and closing these rail properties and afford the sellers a path to liquidity.
