New Orleans Public Belt Railroad Launches railnola.com
New Website Creates Informative User-Friendly Experience

NEW ORLEANS — New Orleans Public Belt Railroad Corporation is proud to announce the launch of our new site, railnola.com. NOPB teamed up with Trumpet, an award-winning branding firm, based in New Orleans, to create the site and modern aesthetic. It offers a seamless, user-friendly experience and a clean, easy-to-navigate layout. NOPB is thrilled to share its new web presence with both existing and prospective customers and community alike.

“We have officially moved over to railnola.com. Our new website offers exciting features for both our customers and our neighbors. Customers can get an instant rate estimate, order rail cars, and take a deeper dive into our network through a series of interactive GIS maps. Neighbors have access to educational resources and our latest news and updates to the Urban Rail Initiative. A revamped historic timeline also shares our rich 110+ year history. We are excited to now have a website that embodies our vision for the future and the synergy with the Port of New Orleans,” explains NOPB General Manager Doug Campbell.

With the launch of the new railnola.com website and web address, all NOPB emails were replaced by @railnola.com to align with the Rail NOLA brand. Those interested in reaching NOPB employees should follow this address convention: firstname.lastname@railnola.com. The previous nopb.com website and email addresses will redirect to railnola.com for a transition period to allow time for past users to note and bookmark the change. We are certain that it will serve as a tool to inform, educate, entertain and streamline our business, all-in-one. To experience the exciting changes for yourself, visit www.railnola.com.
