The City of Shafter operates a Rail Terminal that provides a link between the BNSF Railway Company and industry connected to the Shafter Rail Terminal track.
The City of Shafter owns all tracks between the BNSF mainline and industries with spur tracks in the Wonderful Industrial Park. Shafter personnel provides switching services under the guidelines established and adopted by the Shafter City Council (Rail Operations Procedures).
It is envisioned that the terminal will continue to expand as the Wonderful Industrial Park continues to grow and it is planned to have a public container freight station established by 2016 to provide for the receiving and shipping by rail from non-rail spur shippers and receivers.
Interested parties who wish to locate in the park and receive rail service from the BNSF may the contact Brent Green at the City of Shafter.
