- Minnesota Southern Railway
Minnesota Southern Railway (MSWY) located in the Southwestern corner of Minnesota operates two Class I connections: BNSF in Manley and Union Pacific at Agate which means lower rates. Since we are connected with two class 1’s BNSF and Union Pacific – you win – better rates, better service options. Studies show that when two or more class I’s compete their rates are dramatically less than on “captive switches”. MSWY offers a great location for mode to mode transloading, rail storage or handling.
