Beautifully engraved certificate from the Providence and Worcester Railroad Company This historic document was printed by a Banknote Company and has an ornate border around it with a vignette of an eagle. This item has the printed signatures of the Company’s President and Secretary.

Providence and Worcester Railroad Company (“P&W” or the “Company”) is a regional freight railroad as defined by the American Association of Railroads (“AAR”) operating in Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut and New York. The Company is the only interstate freight carrier serving the State of Rhode Island and possesses the exclusive and perpetual right to conduct freight operations over the National Railroad Passenger Corporation’s (“Amtrak”) Northeast Corridor between New Haven, Connecticut and the Massachusetts/Rhode Island border. Since commencing independent operations in 1973, the Company, through a series of acquisitions of connecting lines and trackage rights agreements, has grown from 45 miles of track to its current system of approximately 516 miles. P&W services the largest international double-stack intermodal terminal facility in New England in Worcester, Massachusetts, a strategic location for regional transportation and distribution enterprises.

The Company transports a wide variety of commodities for its customers, including automobiles, construction aggregates, iron and steel products, chemicals and plastics (including ethanol), lumber, scrap metals, plastic resins, cement, coal, construction and demolition debris, and processed foods and edible foodstuffs, such as corn syrup and vegetable oils. Its customers include Exxon Mobil Corporation, Ford Motor Company, Frito-Lay, Inc., Global LLP, GDF SUEZ Energy North America, International Paper Company, Lehigh Cement, Cargill, Inc., Northeast Utilities, Nucor Steel, Rawson Materials, Renewable Products Marketing Group, Subaru of New England, Tilcon Connecticut, Inc. and Toray Plastics (America), Inc. In 2014, P&W transported 35,196 carloads of freight and 20,714 intermodal containers. In addition, the Company generates income through the grants of easements, leases, and licenses to use portions of its property. P&W’s connections to multiple Class I railroads (operating revenues in excess of $467.0 million under the AAR definition), either directly or through connections with other regional and short-line carriers, provide the Company with a competitive advantage by allowing it to offer various pricing and routing alternatives to its customers. In addition, the Company’s commitment to maintaining its track and equipment to high standards enables P&W to provide fast, reliable and efficient service.
