Track Design

Track Inspections

Sending an experienced trackman to your site to walk your track, locate trackwork deficiencies, and send you a track inspection report. Some customers have us automatically set on regular inspections.

Track Surfacing

Providing railroad equipment to raise sections of rail and mechanically tamp/vibrate the ballast beneath the ties to provide maximum track compaction. While tamping, we can align both rails to matching elevation. Finally, we'll mechanically broom/bring together the loose ballast along the track for further compaction and to provide that uniform track appeal.
