New Providence & Worcester logo
Genesee & Wyoming
DARIEN, Conn. — The "i"s are dotted, the "t"s are crossed and the Providence & Worcester Railroad now has a new logo to mark its entry into the Genesee & Wyoming family of railroads.

The Surface Transportation Board granted authority for G&W to buy the Class III railroad on Dec. 15. And G&W executives began further integration on Jan. 3 confirming that the famed New England short line will be part of G&W's North American Northeast Region, with headquarters in Rochester, N.Y., and unveiling P&W's new logo on their website.

The logo outlines P&W's original route in Rhode Island and Massachusetts, accented with the railroad's 1844 charter date. P&W's largest presence is in Connecticut and it operates in New York, as well, but the new logo recognizes the railroad's original Providence, R.I.-Worcester, Mass. route, according to Michael E. Williams, G&W corporate communications vice president. The design was specified and chosen by P&W employees, Williams tells Trains News Wire.
