The National Lime and Stone Company has been in the rail distribution business for decades, and we’ve forged the longstanding relationships necessary to make the most of these capabilities.
At National, we have employees who have worked directly with the railroads for so long that they know the business inside and out. Because of their expert knowledge and insight, we’ve been able to innovate and patent state-of-the art unloading technologies that save our customers time and money.
With what we call our direct quarry connection, we have the capability to deliver stone within an 8 state region (IL, IN, KY, MI, NY, OH, PA, and WV). We have multiple quarries with access to our four primary rail carriers (CSX, Wheeling & Lake Erie, Norfolk Southern, and Rail America). This makes it possible for us to distribute quality stone to our own distribution yards in areas without high-quality limestone, or directly to our customer’s sites and projects.
