Central Oregon & Pacific Railroad, Inc. CORP #157

Nature of Firm

CORP provides freight service from a connection with UP at Eugene, OR to another UP connection at Black Butte, CA (303 miles). Connections are also made with Rogue Valley Terminal Railroad at White City, OR and with Yreka Western at Montague, CA. Traffic is primarily forest products, chemicals, steel and LPG.     


The main line from Eugene to Black Butte was built mostly by the Oregon & California Railroad, which built south from Eugene starting in the 1870’s. It was not until 1884 that the line reached Ashland. It was leased to SP and completed to Black Butte in 1887. SP sold the majority of the lines and leased the remainder to RailTex on December 31, 1994.  In 2002, RailAmerica acquired control of CORP. Genesee & Wyoming acquired control of CORP in December 2012.
