Lance Gilman of L Lance Gilman Real Estate Services, the exclusive broker for the Tahoe Reno Industrial Center, said an additional two miles of track is being added to the center’s internal railroad system to serve new companies.

When the latest rail project is completed there will be more than 10 miles of track in the center.

A federal license has been granted that will allow TRI to operate its own railroad within the massive development.

Developers have dubbed the new railroad the Tahoe Reno Railroad and are working to hire a company that can bring in engines and personnel to operate the rail line. This will let current tenants that have rail service with Union Pacific to switch to the new Tahoe Reno Railroad.

The tracks at TRI are all on the west side of the four-lane USA Parkway and there are no plans right now to bring the rail line across the expressway. The rail line will continue to be extended as the project grows.

When it is finished, the Tahoe Reno Industrial Center will be the largest industrial complex in the world.
