Transportation Company - Jersey Southern - Railroad

Company History: The JSRW opened in 1983 to take over operation of a three and a third mile former Jersey Central route between Bridgeton Junction and Seabrook, New Jersey. The arrangement lasted until 1987 when operation of the line was taken over by the Winchester & Western Railroad.

Successor/Parent History:
The WW appeared in 1940 when the Winchester & Wardersville was reorganized (that line had been reorganized in 1929 from an earlier Winchester & Western.)

The WW ran for many years from Gore to Winchester, Virginia. In 1986, WW bought the old Pennsylvania line from Winchester to Williamsport and Hagarstown, Maryland from Conrail. WW is owned by mineral producing giant Unimin, who is a major shipper on the line. When Conrail moved to dispose of 40 miles of former CNJ and P-RSL trackage in New Jersey also in 1986, Unimin snapped up those lines (which also served Unimin facilities.) A year later, Unimin bought the Jersey Southern as well. All of the New Jersey routes are also operated under the Winchester & Western name.

Brief History:
The U.S. is a country of 50 states covering a vast swath of North America, with Alaska in the northwest and Hawaii extending the nation’s presence into the Pacific Ocean. Major Atlantic Coast cities are New York, a global finance and culture center, and capital Washington, DC. Midwestern metropolis Chicago is known for influential architecture and on the west coast, Los Angeles' Hollywood is famed for filmmaking.
