Tulare Valley Railroad Company TVRR #839

Nature of Firm
On December 22, 1992, this company acquired several former ATSF California branch lines totaling 158 miles including the following:

The only trackage remaining on TVRR is a branch from Ducor to Ultra (6.1 miles). The remainder of this Railroad has been purchased by the SJVR in May 1998.

The company has contracted San Joaquin Valley Railroad (SJVR) to operate this line. Since starting service, TVRR has been abandoned between Corcoran and Tulare, 14.7 miles and between Visalia and Cutler, 13.3 miles. Wyeth to Orange Cove and Minkler has also been abandoned.

This company is controlled by Morris Kulmer, Kern Schumucher and Michael Van Wagenen.
