North Shore in the Community

For the third year in a row, December 9-11, 2016, we were proud to be the Corporate Sponsor of the Bellefonte Victorian Christmas celebration. This three-day event is a great opportunity for families to experience carriage rides and enjoy shows, Dickens & Company, and so much more! For more information about the celebration, go to: www.bellefontevictorianchristmas.com.

We are overjoyed to report another successful year for the local US Marine Corp Reserve Toys for Tots drive on the North Shore Railroad. The success of this event, held December 3, 2016, wouldn't be possible without the efforts of Larry Maynard from Central PA Excursions and North American Railcar Operators Association (NARCOA). Prior to the event, North Shore Railroad offered its office in Northumberland as a key drop off point for toys. The drive concluded with the 13th annual NARCOA speeder ride - where NARCOA participants collected donated toys and money towards the toy drive from generous people along the railroad tracks from Northumberland to Berwick. This year's drive brought in more than $3,000 in donations and 750 toys! A huge THANKS to NARCOA and all of the wonderful people who contributed to this worthy cause, making many children's Christmas a lot brighter this year.
On November 18, 2016, the Greater Susquehanna Valley Chamber of Commerce (GSVCC) and Central PA Chamber of Commerce hosted a Joint Legislative Breakfast at the Country Cupboard in Lewisburg. We served as the GSVCC’s sponsor for the event, educating the attendees about our company and encouraging them to support local manufacturers.

November 1, 2016, we were very pleased to be one of the VIP Sponsors for the Clinton County Economic Partnership (CCEP) Annual Dinner. This dinner was a great event, hosted by the CCEP at Lock Haven University. It highlighted the CCEP’s 2016 accomplishments and the people of Clinton County who have gone above and beyond to help bring tourism to the area.

On October 12, 2016, we teamed up with the Bellefonte Historical Railroad Society to educate students from Bald Eagle Area School District about the history and current-day operation of Nittany & Bald Eagle Railroad. The students were eager for this visit, since they had already constructed railroad posters to display at Steamtown in Scranton. These posters will join others in becoming part of a wrap that will cover a replica of NASA's Mars Dream Rocket! We really enjoyed meeting the students and love their work.

On June 11, 2016, our Communications & Signals and Maintenance of Way Departments joined the Priestley Forsyth Memorial Library’s Fourth Annual “Touch a Truck” program, in Northumberland, for the third consecutive year.


Specialized vehicles from local businesses were displayed for kids and families to “touch” and learn about, and meet the people who drive them. Our North Shore teddy bear joined in on the fun again this year!

May 4, 2016, we welcomed very special visitors at our home office in Northumberland, Boy Scout Troop #419. The boys enjoyed learning about our railroad and getting a hands-on experience with one of our locomotives.

We would like to thank our Accounting Department, which puts a lot of hard work into hosting groups like the Boy Scouts. They work hard to make these events enjoyable and memorable experiences.

Part of our mission statement is to “to be responsible civic partners with the communities we serve.” We believe it is vital to be an active proponent of community development.

As such, we decided, for the third year in a row, in 2016, to spon-sor Focus Central PA, a nonprofit, regional economic development marketing alliance. One of the larger projects Focus Central PA is working on, is the marketing of Great Stream Commons, a commercial and industrial park located on Highway 15 (a major north-south truck-ing artery) just four miles north of Interstate 80 at the New Columbia interchange. The 305 acre park offers full infrastructure, including municipal water & sewer, natu-ral gas, 3-phase electricity, KOZ tax status, and rail ser-vice capacity from our Union County Industrial Railroad.

Our financial support of Focus Central PA helps assist in their efforts to attract new compa-nies to the region - companies that provide family sustaining employment opportunities and regional growth. Strong regional business development is the best path toward a strong, lasting community.

Check out Focus Central PA at www.focuscentralpa.org.

For 2015, we are so glad to report another successful year for the local Toys for Tots drive.

This year, in addition to participation from North American Railcar Operators Association (NARCOA), we had a lot of help for the toy drive from Bellefonte Historical Railroad Society (BHRS). As part of the “Christmas in Lemont” celebration, speeder rides were sold, and a portion of the proceeds along with toys were graciously donated to the drive. In the weeks leading up to the culmination of the drive, the NSHR office in Northum-berland was a key drop off point for toys.

The toy drive concluded with the much celebrated, annual NARCOA speeder ride - where NARCOA participants col-lected donated toys and money towards the toy drive from generous peo-ple along the railroad tracks from Northumberland to Berwick. This year's drive resulted in more than $3,120 in donations and 1,100 toys!

A big THANK YOU to BHRS, NARCOA, and all of the wonderful people who contributed.

November 14, 2015, Sunbury’s Revitalization, Inc. hosted its first ever Biz Pitch Competition. We were glad to be able to sponsor and actively assist with this event. After a first round of 15 applicants, four finalists presented their business pitches in a “sharktank” fashion at the Elks Lodge, in Sunbury. The winner of the $10,000 prize package was Radiance Holistic Center and Academy. Keep a look out for this company coming to Sunbury soon!

On November 6, 2015, we had the pleasure of hosting the Penn State Altoona Rail Transportation Engineering Program’s faculty, juniors, and seniors. The visit included an overview of our company, a tour of our locomotive shop, with a briefing on projects, records, budgets, and training, a luncheon, and a special caboose tour of Newberry Yard. We wish this tremen-dous group - in particular the second graduating class of this program - the best of luck in their upcoming careers in the transportation industry!

"Thank you to the North Shore team for your assistance in moving rail for the BHRS.

"We purchased several sections of rail from the JRA that needed to be moved to Lemont for use by BHRS. After contacting Jim Mackey at NBER for permission to move the rail, by hand, using push cars, Jim went out of his way to assist us by providing access to the NSHR's Prentice truck and having Sean Davenport from the NSHR Maintenance of Way crew relocate the rail to Lemont. This saved BHRS m...any hours of heavy labor and was much appreciated.

"Jim, his team from the NBER, and all the staff at North Shore often go out of their way to assist BHRS. These actions reflect both the quality of the NSHR team and their commitment to the needs of the local communities they serve.

"Again, thank you for your assistance with this project and special thanks to Sean and Jim for their help."

On June 13th, our Communications & Signals and Maintenance of Way Departments partici-pated in the Priestley Forsyth Memorial Library’s Fourth Annual “Touch a Truck” pro-gram, held on King Street in Northumberland.

We joined other local businesses, putting specialized vehicles on display for kids and families to explore, allowing kids to touch a truck, see what makes them special, and meet the people who drive them.

It was a fun day- the kids learned lots from our guys, and they loved to honk the trucks’ horns!

Our very own Diana Williams, Pete Simcox, and Pete Symons joined up with approximately 40 other short lines at the 2015 American Short Line Railroad Association’s Annual Convention to help with a very special service project on March 28th.

They volunteered to help clean up the Give Kids the World Village, which partners with Make-A-Wish groups from all over the world. Together they offer children who have life-threatening or terminal illnesses and their families a break from the hospitals and doctors, to let them be kids again.

December 13, 2014 NARCOA ran its annual Toys for Tots speeder train up the NSHR line. 2014's drive resulted in: 548 toys, 156 small/stocking stuffer toys, 9 books, and $2498.00 in donations!

State Representative Lynda Schlegel Culver joined us for the event to judge the best decorated speeder car.

April 28, 2014, we gave a briefing on short line service, a motor tour of the Newberry Yard, and a walk-through tour of the locomotive repair shop in Williamsport to the Nigerian Delegation to PennDOT. It was great to partner with PennDOT to showcase our great Commonwealth and the outstanding work of its citizens.

April 25, 2014, we were honored to host the National Railway Historical Society annual meeting (the first ever to be held in PA) using our passenger equipment. The train ran on the Union County Industrial Railroad from Delta Place (Lewisburg), south to Winfield, then north to Allenwood. Pictured, the train made a stop at White Deer Station.

They presented us with the “Susquehanna Valley Marine Corps League #308 Detachment Award” for the most toys collected in our category in the 2013 Toys for Tots Campaign. Special thanks to North American Railcar Operators Association (NARCOA) for their efforts in this great cause.

August 2013, North Shore Railroad Company sponsored a 1912 Aultman Taylor Steam Traction Engine exhibit for Snyder County’s West End Fair.

Shown in the picture are Russ and Gary Bingaman, members of the Central PA Vintage Iron Club.

On December 7, 2013, PA State Representative Lynda Schlegel Culver stood with North Shore Railroad's President & CEO, Gary Shields. Rep. Lynda Schlegel Culver did the honors of judging the best decorated NARCOA Speeder participating in the Annual Toys for Tots drive, in Northumberland.

August 6th, 2013, the Lycoming Valley Locomotive Shop had very special visitors, Boy Scout Troop 31 of State College. The boys gathered in the shop to earn their Railroading Merit Badge. Chief Mechanical Officer, Ray O’Brien, showed them around the shop and taught them about locomotives. It was great hosting Troop 31 and we hope they all learned something awesome and new.

April 3, 2014, Williamsport Area School District Superintendent Dr. Kathleen Kelley, Muncy School District Superintendent Dr. Portia Brandt, and Loyalsock School District Superintendent Dr. Robert Gantier visited the Lycoming Valley Railroad Company to discuss our local rail operation with a focus on the educational requirements necessary to succeed in the railroad business. We were glad to have the opportunity to meet with them and to talk about these important workforce development issues. The three Superintendents said they were impressed with our rail operations, employees, and the quality of work shown to them.  

For the past few years, we have been pleased to assist the Bellefonte Little League in their work on the ball field parking lot. Last year our Maintenance of Way department delivered 40 ties that were used to snazzy up their lot. This past March we were able to give them 50 to continue with the great work that they are doing. We are honored to be one of Bellefonte Little League’s sponsors.

In 2015, our Locomotive Repair Department, in Williamsport made major improvements to NBER 4174.

First, the original, high short-hood was removed, and turned into a low short-hood. This required fabrication of a new front cab wall, interior door, front windshield, door frame, and front number plate/headlight housing. In the process, the short-hood subfloor and front walkway were replaced, the traction motor blower was relocated to create walk-around space, and ballast weight supports were repaired.

Picture courtesy of Ray O'Brien

While NBER 4174 underwent major reconstruction on the outside, it recieved some upgrades on the inside, as well: Old wiring was removed; a new main electrical cabinet and AC cabinet was fabricated; and conduit, a new AAR type control stand, flooring, cab lights, and seats were installed. Then the low voltage system was completely rewired by an outside contractor.

In 2016, ASLRRA’s AVP Jenny Bourque stated:
Congratulations! I am pleased to tell you that the Buffalo & Pittsburgh Railroad/Nittany & Bald Eagle Railroad entry is one of the three winners of the 2016 ASLRRA Marketing Awards Competition. This is a wonderful accomplishment and one of which you and everyone at the railroads should be especially proud. Our judges all commented on the exceptional quality of this year’s entries. To rank among the top three submissions says a great deal about the marketing brainpower at work at your operations.

This award was resultant of Nittany & Bald Eagle Railroad’s (NBER) joint entry with the Buffalo & Pittsburgh Railroad (BPRR)/Genesee & Wyoming (G&W) marketing team honoring the recent development of rail movements between Graymont Lime on NBER and the Homer City Generating Station on BPRR. It is a bit unusual for two separate short line railroads to do a joint entry for a single project but this project demonstrated the cooperation that we eagerly participate in to capture new business! Thank you to the G&W Marketing team (Kevin Bowser and Ryan Fisher) and others who assisted in developing this new business and with the entry submission and thank you to the ASLRRA.

A special THANK YOU to Anadarko for donating concrete barriers in December 2015.

In 2015, State Representative Lynda Schlegel Culver presented North Shore Railroad with a House citation recognizing its 30-year history as a small family-owned and operated business in our area. Culver is proud to recognize businesses that contribute to the well-being of their communities by adhering to the highest standards.
