Arizona Eastern Railway

Arizona Eastern Railway

Overview

The Arizona Eastern Railway (AZER) is composed of two rail lines operating over 200 track miles in southeast Arizona and southwest New Mexico that are connected by 52 miles of trackage rights over the Union Pacific Railroad.

Commodities transported include copper, chemicals and agricultural and forest products.

The AZER was acquired by Genesee & Wyoming in 2011 but has roots older than G&W itself. AZER was originally chartered in 1895 as the Gila Valley, Globe & Northern, with 133 route-miles between Bowie and Miami, Arizona. Today, AZER also includes a 70-mile line between Clifton, Arizona, and Lordsburg, New Mexico, that connects to the original Bowie line via trackage rights.
