Marquette Rail

Marquette Rail

Overview

Marquette Rail (MQT) serves western Michigan with approximately 126 miles of track. The primary rail route extends from connections with CSX and Norfolk Southern/Grand Elk at Grand Rapids northward to Ludington and Manistee. These lines, formerly part of the Pere Marquette Railroad network that covered most of the state’s Lower Peninsula, have been in continuous operation since 1874.

The MQT transports chemicals, paperboard, grain, salt, petroleum products and other commodities.

The MQT also serves as a storage agent for fleet owners requiring convenient accommodations for seasonally inactive or off-lease rolling stock. Capacity is in excess of 500 railcars.

Connections with both major Eastern trunk lines make the MQT a preferred source for box car, hopper and tank storage accessible to the upper Midwest. All car types are routinely received and delivered on short notice, and inspection, running repairs and testing services can be provided upon request.
