LAS VEGAS, NV, Jan. 25, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The Las Vegas Railway Express, Inc. (OTCPK: XTRN), owner of the X Train brand and brand licensor, today announced the acquisition of United Rail, a private company and owner of the Rail Management Services (RMS) short line management package. RMS is an integrated management services bundle which allows short line companies in both freight and passenger excursion businesses to contract for services such as marketing and sales, accounting, logistics, compliance and other functions by outsourcing these expensive functions for a fraction of current costs. RMS will become the primary business of XTRN as it now will seek to have short line companies use RMS for their business management backbone. Affiliate short lines using RMS will only pay for the services they use and those seasonal businesses in the passenger rail business won’t need to carry expensive staff costs when not running.
“The United Rail RMS system was developed by short line rail operators in both the freight and passenger excursion environments. By outsourcing back office functions to RMS, short line companies can save money on operating costs,” stated Wayne Bailey, CEO of XTRN. “By affiliating under our United Rail brand and deploying the RMS system, we can offer access to capital, discounts on insurance products, and much more via our larger purchasing footprint, to our X Train Affiliates,” Bailey said.
The system is currently in use by X Rail Entertainment, Inc. (OTCPK:XREE) on its X Wine Railroad service and for use on its LA to Las Vegas service planned for June of 2018.
