GoRail: Annual Report 2020 in Review
Monday, March 15, 2021 by Posted by Haines City EDC

2020 brought challenges none of us could have foreseen.

I am immensely proud of the GoRail team and sincerely grateful to everyone who made it possible for us to effectively continue our work despite a raging pandemic and the resulting economic turmoil and disruptions to daily life.
Take a look at our 2020 in review—from highlighting the resiliency of the rail network and its workers to recruiting 1000+ local leaders for a letter commemorating the 40th anniversary of the Staggers Rail Act.
We at GoRail could not be more optimistic about the ability of freight rail to serve as a solid foundation for a sustainable and robust recovery in 2021 and beyond.
— Russ McGurk, President of GoRail
