Where to find short line investors?

Postby SouthernRailway » Sun Oct 06, 2013 10:59 am

Are there any organized investor groups that invest (either debt or equity) in short lines or other railroad industries? If not, how do short lines generally find investors? Are they usually just bought by investors who need no further financing, do wealthy people with railroad experience invest in them, are there venture capitalists or banks that invest in railroads, or something else?

I would expect that Class 1s would have no problem getting a slew of investors, but short lines and other railroad industries would be different.

Thanks.
