“We have filed this offering with the SEC in order to provide sufficient capital to acquire several short line railroad targets that the Company has identified. Our plan is to consolidate the smaller and sometimes overlooked short lines and passenger excursions and consolidate them under the United Rail Inc. banner,” said Michael Barron, CEO of United Rail Inc.
Mr. Barron continued, “With the inclusion of United Short Line Insurance Services (USIS) under the United Rail Inc. umbrella, we now have a pathway to effectively reach those small railroad companies who wish to sell.”
