Train Information

Bay Coast's Delmarva operations are based out of Cape Charles, Va, where BCRR train crews are on duty as required, typically around 0600, and work north from Cape Charles and turn back as required by customer demand. Beginning at the NS interchange in Pocomoke City, Md, the line quickly crosses into the state of Virginia and contines south through the stations of New Church, Oak Hall, Hallwood, Bloxom, Hopeton, Parksley, Onley, Melfa, Painter, Exmore, Nassawadox, Cheriton and Cape Charles. At Cape Charles, the BCRR has a rare carfloat operation that acts as a 26-mile land/sea bridge of the Chesapeake Bay. The float docks in Little Creek, Va, to the south, allowing the BCRR to quickly access NS, CSX and the Norfolk and Portsmouth Belt Line in Norfolk. Active customers on the line include a tank car and rip rap rock transload at New Church, Pep-Up in Oak Hall, Associated Farms in Parksley, Helena in Tasley, Sharp Energy in Exmore, Coastal Commodities in Eastville and Bayshore Concrete in Cape Charles. BCRR has runaround tracks at Pocomoke, Parksley, Exmore, Nassawadox and Cape Charles to help facilitate operations.
