Short Line Data Systems

Running a Small Railroad Made Easier

What We Do

If you have a small railroad, managing the data side of things can be overwhelming.  Short Line Data Systems has a full set of tools to help you run your railroad. We are railroaders too, and we use all of our products.


All of our products are Microsoft Access based.  This allows flexibility with the number of users and the ability to use data with other programs.


All of your data remains on your computers. You don’t need to be on the web to use our systems.


All of our products are designed to be customized to how you run your railroad.  Your system is your system.
