The Lines traverse United States Postal Service Zip Code 68107. According to BRR, there is currently one company, United States Cold Storage, Inc.

Additionally, GBW Railcar Services, LLC (GBW), utilizes the Lines to provide private carriage for the rail cars moving to and from its repair facilities on the Lines. Once the proposed abandonment is authorized by the Board and consummated, the Lines will continue to be used by GBW to provide private carriage and by BRR to provide contract (not common carrier) service for Cold Storage. BRR states that the Lines do not contain federally granted rights-of-way. Any documentation in BRR’s possession will be made available to those requesting it. The interest of railroad employees will be protected by the conditions set forth in Oregon Short Line Railroad— Abandonment Portion Goshen Branch Between Firth & Ammon, in Bingham & Bonneville Counties, Idaho, 360 I.C.C. 91 (1979).
