Default New operator for the Piedmont & Northern

NCDOT has been searching for a new operator for the Piedmont & Northern in Gastonia, NC after Patriot Rail terminated their operating contract in late 2014. Iowa Pacific Holdings (IPH) has been selected as the new operator. While seeking freight opportunities, it also appears IPH intends on operating passenger excursions, as they do on many of their low-density freight operations among their holdings.
