Our History

After the numerous needs and issues facing the railroads in the State of New Jersey, Bob Bailey of the Port Jersey Railroad conducted a fact finding and best practices mission, which led to the formation of The New Jersey Short Line Railroad Association (NJSLRRA) in July 1991. Bob Bailey was the President from its founding serving diligently without interruption until December 31, 2018. Also chartering the initial association was the late Ben Friedland of the Morristown & Erie Railway, after whom the Benjamin J. Friedland Award is named.

The initial NJSLRRA Meetings were hosted by New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) for the first years. Over time the meeting migrated to Conrail Headquarters where they are attended by New Jersey short lines, Conrail, CSXT, Norfolk Southern, CP, US DHS and FRA representatives, NJDOT and NJ TRANSIT officials, consultants, contractors, railroad suppliers, and members of the NJ Legislature. In 2019 All the freight railroads decided to create the New Jersey Railroad Association (NJRRA) to work together with a commitment to work with ALL who assist supporting freight rail transportation in the State of New Jersey.
