Louisville and Indiana Railroad honored

Jeffersonville-based Louisville & Indiana Railroad has received an award for efforts to hire and retain military veterans.

The railroad was one of four winners of the Timmons Award, named after Lt. Gen. Richard F. Timmons, recognizing small and mid-size railroads and rail supply companies with the highest ratio of veterans in their work force. Louisville & Indiana was selected from a 2017 survey sent to more than 500 railroads and rail suppliers.

A quarter of the company’s employees are veterans, active duty reservists or members of the National Guard, according to John Goldman, railroad president.
