CUSTOMER QUOTE:

"Your service is second to none, you help us develop potential business, solved problems with equipment, handle our week to week rail deliveries on time,
you keep us informed of incoming cars. Our rail siding upgrade and unloading system was completely handled by SVRR. 
In other words you’ve helped us grow our business by using rail and you’ve saved us money and provided infrastructure improvement."

Serving Customers from Sunbury to Shamokin, PA Since 1988

Today, Shamokin Valley Railroad is a 28.8 mile short line that interchanges with Norfolk Southern in Northumberland, Canadian Pacific Railway in Sunbury, and Reading Blue Mountain and Northern Railroad in Locust Summit. In 2012, PA Rail Transloading, LLC, completed a 660’ long high wall that can accommodate ten railcars for truck to rail transfer of bulk commodities in Shamokin, PA. The infrastructure is owned by SEDA-COG JRA.

The predecessors of our Shamokin Valley Railroad date back to the Danville & Pottsville Railroad, which was incorporated in 1826, and finished construction between Sunbury and Shamokin in 1838. This company became the Philadelphia & Sunbury Railroad in 1851, and in 1858 the line became the Shamokin Valley & Pottsville Railroad (SV&P). The SV&P was leased by the Northern Central Railway in 1883, thence passed to the Pennsylvania Railroad’s control, but continued its separate corporate existence under until acquired by Conrail in 1976. When the line was sold in 1987, SEDA-COG acquired it to maintain rail service in Northumberland County and the Shamokin Valley Railroad was incorporated as the operating company. The west twelve miles of the Shamokin Valley Railroad, between Sunbury and Reed, utilizes the former Reading Company’s alignment (opened 1883 as the Shamokin, Sunbury & Lewisburg Railroad).
