Another Successful Year for 
"Trains to Planes"

Trains to Planes cruised in 2017 as more than 4,200 riders took advantage of the service to enjoy this year's Air National Guard Air Show & Open House. Created as an effort to reduce traffic congestion at the Air Show, Trains to Planes allowed guests to experience the Seaview Railroad, Quonset's cargo rail line. 

For over three decades Seaview Transportation, the Park's rail provider, has been responsible for all rail service in the Park. With more than 14 miles of railroad track, the Seaview Railroad has provided tenants and shippers with a convenient and cost-effective means of transporting goods within the park as well as throughout North America.

Air-show-goers were able to catch a ride to the Air Show from Providence, T.F. Green station in Warwick, or from Wickford Junction right here in North Kingstown. The program was created in partnership with Rhode Island Department of Transportation's (RIDOT), RI Air National Guard, and MBTA.

Eric Moffett, president of the Seaview Transportation Company and Railroad, said he and his team are committed to furthering the growth and development of Quonset.

Custom Design, Inc. Celebrates 
Renovations and Growth
Then and Now: CDI employees gathered around their flagpole when the company moved to Quonset in 1996 and when they celebrated the completion of renovations to their building this year on Flag Day.

Custom Design Inc., has called Quonset home for more than 20 years, making it one of the longest-standing companies at the park. Recent renovations added more space to their pre-existing building and will help to expand their sales efforts. The renovations highlight growth and prosperity for the company and its employees. 

CDI came to Quonset in 1996, and is based in one of the few remaining original Quonset-hut structures in the park.
"The unique shape of the building allows for a seamless flow from product design to customer delivery," said Adam Dias, Vice President at CDI.

The added space has allowed the company undertake larger projects with an expanded staff. 

"It has been incredible seeing the progress that we've made at Quonset since we opened," added Dias.
