Gulf & Atlantic Railways is new name for RailUSA, Headquarters moved to Jacksonville


JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — With a new name and logo, the holding company Gulf &
Atlantic Railways LLC (, formerly known as RailUSA, has relocated to
a new corporate office in Jacksonville, Fla., where it will continue to oversee its two key
properties, the Florida, Gulf & Atlantic Railroad (FGA) and Grenada Railroad (GRYR).
Gulf & Atlantic President and CEO Ryan Ratledge says, “We are taking a long-term
approach that is heavily focused on investing in our team’s safety and well-being, as well as
the integrity of our facilities. While the RailUSA name and brand date back only a few years,
we want a name and logo that is unique to us and our new phase of growth.”
The move will not change operations at either FGA or GRYR, Ratledge says.
Gulf & Atlantic’s new corporate office is located on the St. John’s River near
downtown Jacksonville at 245 Riverside Ave., Suite 250.
