Chaney Enterprises is now offering its customers limestone that will be transported by a new short line recently completed at the company's plant in Waldorf, Maryland.

Known for providing sand and gravel, Chaney is adding limestone to its product mix to expand the company's market for construction projects, especially those in southern Maryland, Chaney officials said in a press release.

An 80-car train will transport materials in and out of Chaney's 520-acre facility in Waldorf.

"By introducing this first Chaney train for stone delivery, we are now sending products via rail, truck and barge, making all our products readily available," said company President Francis "Hall" Chaney III. "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 customers' needs."

The new dedicated railroad will enable Chaney to reduce long hauls experienced in its trucking fleet, as well as free up trucks "to provide an even better level of customer service," company officials said.

Employees and company friends will help determine a name for the train in October, they said.
