With over a century’s tradition of providing the best possible service, Southern Railway of British Columbia (SRY) is a major transporter of freight in British Columbia providing services to markets throughout North America. SRY’s mission is to safely deliver the best rail-based solutions to its customers and partners.

Almost one half of the traffic handled by SRY originates or terminates on Annacis Island, where major automobile and forest product distribution facilities are located. SRY’s diverse customer base includes over 150 shippers of automobile, forest, building, agricultural, chemical, consumer, and steel products.

SRY handles approximately 65,000 carloads annually and owns over 125 miles of track, of which 62 miles are mainline and interchange with four North American Class I railroads at six locations. SRY is market driven and customer-oriented, and provides neutral short line service. Combined with their long-haul partners, CN, BNSF, CPR, and UP, they have connections to all rail-served destinations in North America.
