Utah Railway with wind turbines in the background

A freight train can move a ton of freight 436 miles on one gallon of fuel. This is the rail industry average, some trains are even more efficient!

In the UK, each ton of freight transported by rail produces 76% less carbon emissions compared to road transportation with one freight train replacing the equivalent of up to 110 lorries.

The number of train collisions nationally has been reduced by 84% percent since 1972 thanks to the help of Operation Lifesaver.

To help meet our goal, our UK/Europe rail operations are testing alternatives to diesel fuel, including hydrotreated vegetable oil (HVO) and a hybrid fuel made from waste oil and gas that cut CO₂ -equivalent emissions over diesel by 92% and nearly 50%, respectively.

In 2021, G&W developed a comprehensive 176-page guide detailing all points of commonality between G&W’s U.S. railroads and 41 Native American tribes to assist in building collaborative relationships.
