Galloway announces state grant for operations at Tyburn rail transfer station

HARRISBURG, March 27 – State Rep. John Galloway today announced a $92,400 state grant to improve rail track and ties at the Tyburn Railroad truck transfer station in Morrisville.

The money comes from the Rail Freight Assistance Program, which is administered within the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation.

“Congratulations to Tyburn on winning this highly competitive state grant,” said Galloway, D-Bucks. “Tyburn is an outstanding local company creating long-term family sustaining jobs and establishing the region as a major transportation hub. Their success reflects highly on our community and the workers there.”

The ties and track resurfacing will cover about a mile of Tyburn’s transfer facility.

The Rail Freight Assistance Program provides financial assistance for investment in rail freight infrastructure. The intent of the program is to preserve essential rail freight service where economically feasible and preserve or stimulate economic development through the generation of new or expanded rail freight service.
