The Paducah & Louisville Railway is a full-service, 265-mile, regional railroad with alpha code of PAL and numeric code of 907. PAL connects directly with four of the seven North American Class I carriers (the BNSF, CSXT, CN and NS). The railroad interchanges unit coal trains with the UP and connect with regional railroad (INRD) and two short lines (the LIRC and FVRR).

PAL's service is further enhanced by its geographic proximity to the nation's highway and inland waterway systems. PAL has a close relationship with water carriers and serve several rail-barge-rail transfer facilities on the Ohio and Tennessee Rivers. Several bulk terminals, warehouses, and transload facilities are located on the line. Several sites are available for new industrial development along the railroad.

These many connections provide customers with rate and route alternatives and the PAL provides the flexible, responsive rail service they deserve. PAL utilizes local knowledge and expertise and works closely with all our transportation partners to secure the best possible price and service packages.

PAL's rail line, buildings, locomotives, car fleet, and communications systems already enviable among regionals are maintained to high standards and are continually upgraded. PAL handles a broad range of commodities, serves over 90 industries, and handles approximately 200,000 car loads annually, originating or terminating 99% of these loads.
