As a New England railroad owner, you must be used to regular maintenance and other needs when it comes to keeping your railroad safe, secure, and profitable. Yet, we see so many clients take a piecemeal approach to railroad management before they meet us.
If you contract out to the lowest bidder with no intention of cultivating a lasting (and trusting) relationship, then you’re missing the biggest piece of the puzzle when it comes to railroad management, trust. With us, you get trust, reliability, consistency, and a full-service approach that meets all your needs. Here’s just some of what we do for New England railroads.
While upkeep is key to the longevity of any railroad, rehabilitation is a hard pill that owners must swallow. After enough time, no matter how well managed your railroad is, the regular wear and tear of transport as well as the harsh New England elements will eventually dictate that your railroad must undergo a little more than maintenance and minor repairs; we call this process track rehabilitation.
We offer 24/7 emergency services for those that need our help now, but we can also create a well-managed plan for your repairs and rehabilitation to ensure limited downtime. We also use thermite-based exothermic welding for most of our repairs, which is both fast and portable.
Part of any good railroad management plan is regular track inspections. Railroads need things like proper ballast coverage, and good drainage, and need to be free of debris and other obstacles that can cause damage to the tracks or the trains traveling on them.
With professional track inspections as part of a railroad management plan, you can ensure that you’re getting the most out of your railroad and that you’re maximizing your track’s effectiveness in the process. Without it, you can turn a molehill into a mountain, or worse.
We are pioneers in railroad construction in the New England region and beyond. If you need a new expanse of track, then we’re the ones to call. Better yet, once it’s built, we’re the perfect people to manage and maintain the track. When we say we are full-service, we mean it. Here’s some of the construction we do:
- Track for yards
- Concrete highway-grade crossings
- Unit train and intermodal facilities
- Industrial rail spurs
- Tracks for Industrial Parks
Railroad crossings get a lot of vehicle and foot traffic, which means they suffer from accelerated wear and tear compared to the rest of the track. We understand the complexities of railroad crossing design, construction, maintenance, and repair. Here is some of what we do:
- Demolition of the old crossing
- Removal of old track panel and installation of new track panel
- Cleaning surface of loose materials
- Laying and rolling new asphalt
- Disposal of old gravel, asphalt, and other construction materials
When it’s time to retire a railroad, the scope of removal can feel insurmountable. Luckily, we specialize in railroad retirement and have the equipment to break down a railroad and haul it away. When it’s time to retire, we make it easy.
We Do Much More
We do more than railroads, and there is almost no limit to what we can do when it comes to railroad track. With that said, please reach out to us with any questions or requests. We’d love to discuss your job and offer our insight.
