Genesee and Wyoming Inc. finalize purchase of DM&E rail lines

Genesee and Wyoming Inc. now own Dakota, Minnesota & Eastern rail lines from Rapid city to Pierre, and the new company is wasting no time getting started with upgrades.

Besides replacing signs and other transitional duties on Sunday, employees within the company also inspected the entire main line and tested communications equipment to ramp up for the increased traffic beginning Monday.

Company spokesman Michael Williams says the newly established subsidiary called Rapid City Pierre and Eastern Railroad will bring more jobs to the region. Several job openings are already available on their website with more positions expected.

He says they also plan to attract new businesses along the line by maintaining a safe, efficient, and vital link between communities it serves.
