World Coal,

Sunrise Coal LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of US-based energy company Hallador Energy, has signed a sidetrack agreement with the Norfolk and Southern Railway to construct a truck-to-rail coal loading facility. 

The facility known as the Princeton Loop will be located 6 miles West of Princeton in Indiana on Highway 64 and includes the ability to unload trucks, blend coals, load 135 car unit trains in four hours and store over 4 million short t of coal.

The new facility will primarily serve utility coal plants served by the Norfolk Southern once the rail facility is completed in the spring of 2018. 

Hallador's President and CEO, Brent Bilsland, stated: "We are excited about the development of the Princeton Loop as it enables Sunrise's low-cost production to access substantial new markets and better serve our customers."
