An applicant may obtain a track lease through completion and submission of a Track Lease Application, accessible via the link below. The application requires payment of a non-refundable $200 application fee and a non-refundable $300 document preparation fee, which can be paid via check or money order made payable to Wheeling & Lake Erie Railway Company. Incomplete applications lacking railroad milepost and railroad subdivision information will be immediately rejected.
Please remember that you must have a Permit to Enter and/or a fully executed agreement to enter or use railroad property.
For “standard processing”, the entire process takes between 4-8 weeks. “Expedited processing” will reduce the processing time to between 1-2 weeks and costs an additional $875.
