Dallas, Garland & Northeastern Railroad DGNO #284
Nature of Firm
DGNO operates over a combination of owned and leased rail lines of over 200 miles, including industrial leads. A line extends from Trenton, TX through Greenville to Garland, TX, then from Garland to Dallas via trackage rights over KCS and UP. DGNO also operates a group of lines from Sherman through McKinney to Plano, and from Carrollton through Plano to Murphy and from Dallas through Carrollton to Lake Dallas. DGNO leases and operates an 11-mile UP rail line between Center Pt., TX and Mockingbird Yard. Traffic includes aggregates, agricultural and food products, lumber, paper, scrap paper, scrap metals and auto parts.
At the end of 1990, all Class I carriers in Dallas, TX sold necessary trackage to Dallas Area Rapid Transit Property Acquisition Corporation (DARTPAC). DARTPAC appointed the DGNO as the operator of the rail lines. DGNO is leasing from UP the line between Greenville and Garland and has purchased the former MKT line (abandoned in 1987) from Greenville to Trenton. DGNO began operating the group of lines through Plano and Carrollton in January 1999. UP leased the Center Pt. to Mockingbird Yard in June 2004.
