Lake State Railway

Lake State Railway Company (LSRC) is a Michigan - based progressive short line railroad that has been providing "EXCELLENCE IN TRANSPORTATION" since 1992.

Thank you to all the first responders on the frontline and to all essential workers, including railroaders. Lake State Railway’s customer mix includes numerous chemical industries which produce products ranging from soaps and adhesives to Ziploc bags to inputs into the fight against COVID-19. Our agricultural customers provide black beans for Busch’s Beans, wheat and flour for Post and Kellogg’s cereal, feed ingredients for many of the major chicken producers, inputs for ethanol production, sugar for products ranging from Nesquik to cereal, organic grain for pet food producers among many other important products. We continue to haul millions of gallons of fuel for heating homes, paper products for medical grade applications and food grade packaging, fertilizers for farm production, coal for energy production, building products, and animal feed. Our Maintenance of Way, Administrative, Car Repair, Locomotive Mechanics, and Transportation employees continue to keep the railroad running. We are proud to say our professional team has stepped-up, taking the responsibility for service seriously while keeping themselves safe and healthy.

Lake State Railway MOW forces work to unload a second continuous welded rail train on the Mackinaw Subdivision through Standish. There will be a total of eight welded rail trains over the next four years to upgrade over 60 miles of mainline on the Mackinaw and Huron Subdivisions. The upgrades are jointly funded through the FRA CRISI program, MDOT, and Lake State Railway capital program. The new rail replaces one hundred year old rail, allowing for increased safety, speeds, and gross rail loadings - all of which benefit customers in Northern Michigan.

Michigan National Guard

Lake State Railway is looking forward to supporting Northern Strike 2020 training at Camp Grayling!

Did you know that by utilizing Camp Grayling’s railhead and any of several deep water ports in #NorthernMichigan, military cargo and equipment can be mobilized from Camp Grayling through the Saint Lawrence Seaway to Europe days quicker than from major ports on the U.S.’s east coast?

This is just one of #CampGrayling’s many assets, which, combined with the facility’s rich history as a troop #mobilization site, make it a premier option to become a U.S. Army Forces Command Mobilization Force Generation Installation (MFGI).

Excellence In Transportation Since 1992

“Excellence in Transportation”: a simple, yet important mission statement that Lake State Railway has lived by for 25 years. Founded in 1992 by entrepreneur Jim George, Lake State Railway has grown to be a vital transportation link, connecting Michigan to national and export markets. With humble beginnings as a once tired and aging system of unprofitable rail lines, Lake State Railway now represents a true Michigan success story. Averaging 40,000 carloads annually, the railroad serves over forty customers systemwide. Economic development projects underway in 2017 will result in a twenty percent customer base increase when completed in the coming months, helping create jobs in regions of Michigan that were once plagued by economic downturn. The future looks bright for northern Michigan - and Lake State Railway is the transportation system to bring it there.
