Salt Lake Garfield & Western Railway provides its customers with safe, cost-effective, and responsive railcar storage and switching options within the Greater Salt Lake City area. Whether its empty or loaded cars, or long-term or short-term storage, our 700-plus railcar storage capacity is distributed across a variety of locations to provide you with the specific railcar storage solutions you require. Our storage operations are focused on care, safety and efficiency, not only to ensure your cars and materials are stored in excellent condition, but that these assets are moved to and from our storage facilities in a way that meets your schedule.
With Class I mainline connections and interchange agreements with both Union Pacific and Burlington Northern Santa Fe, SLGW is able to efficiently access and deliver your cars and commodities for storage and warehousing—and we do so with flexible terms and services at competitive rates. In addition, we provide our customers with complete transloading services when highway transportation services are part of your logistics requirements.
When you contact SLGW, our team will work closely with your team to determine the best storage location(s) in consideration of your railcar quantity, car types, commodity types, and storage duration. SLGW locations are designed to safely store both hazardous and non-hazardous commodities, including petroleum products.
All railcar and material storage arrangements are confirmed by written agreements. These can be daily rate agreements or can take the form of a take-or-pay agreement, which guarantees you storage space within the SLGW system.
