Winchester & Western: Providing our customers with safe, world-class service
while being stewards of the environment and the local communities we serve.
he Winchester & Western Railroad is a Class III shortline railroad operating on two separate divisions commonly referred to as the New Jersey Division and Virginia Division.
Our Virginia Division operates through Maryland, Virginia and West Virginia serving the communities and areas between Gore, VA, Winchester, VA and Hagerstown, MD. And our New Jersey Division operates in southern New Jersey.

Today, the Virginia Division has 53 miles of track running through the Shenandoah Valley, and moves approximately 15,000+ loads per year. The New Jersey Division has 47 miles of track and moves approximately 11,000+ loads per year.
In terms of safety and reliability, railroads are the best way to ship your commodities. Nearly any material can be shipped by rail, and freight trains are especially efficient in shipping heavy goods over long distances
Safety is our top priority. We continuously look for innovative approaches to enhance the safety and security of our employees, our communities and the customers we serve. Human factor incidents are very rare – and we are proud to say say that we haven’t had a lost time accident in nearly 30 years!
