Known for providing sand and gravel, the introduction of limestone to Chaney's product mix will expand the company's market for construction projects, especially those in southern Maryland. The 80-railcar train will transport mate- rials in and out of Chaney's 520-acre facility on Acton Lane in Waldorf serv- ing as an efficient and cost-effective way of moving both the outbound loads and inbound loads of raw material supplies. "By introducing this first Chaney train for stone delivery, we are now send- ing products via rail, truck and barge, making all our products readily avail- able," said Francis "Hall" Chaney III, president of Chaney Enterprises. "We can now offer more products to a wider market area at competitive pricing, truly positioning us for continued and strategic growth, and reflecting our passion for this industry and our cus- tomers' needs." Chaney's dedicated railroad also means the company will reduce long hauls experienced in their trucking fleet: reducing safety risk, traffic and emissions. This strategic move is key in promoting efficient material move- ments and helping with the uncertainty of long truck hauling. It will also free Chaney's truck fleet to provide an even better level of customer service. Chaney held a "name the train" poll at its annual Bull Roast. The winning name had yet to be released by press time. FAST FACT The 80-railcar train will transport materials in and out of Chaney's 520-acre facility on Acton Lane in Waldorf, Mass.
