Be pro-active instead of reactive by implementing a rail check-up. A full evaluation can prevent major problems for you in the future, saving you time, money and potentially even lives. Maintenance is part of our everyday life, we maintain our vehicles, our homes, and even our own bodies in an effort to prevent future problems.  

 

The service for a rail inspection includes a thorough evaluation of your track and switches followed by a detailed report of findings that will categorize repair recommendations by priority. Inspection fees are based on the length of track and number of switches.

 

Following your review of the report, we can quickly address any immediate problems and work together on a plan and a BUDGET THAT WORKS FOR THE CUSTOMER, should more permanent repairs be required.

TRACK INSPECTION

 

Increasing rail volume and heavier car weights continue to require more and more track maintanance and capital improvements. If built correctly, railroad track is known to stand the test of time. Depending on traffic levels, curvature, grade and the environment, it may not need maintenance for as long as 20+ years or as little as 2 years. The most important aspect of owning track is inspection. Through periodic track inspections, you can closely monitor it's condition and identify problems early. This allows the track owner to plan the repairs on their schedule and avoids them turning into an even bigger problem. Too many times I've seen a $2500 repair ignored which ended up turning into a $200,000+ derailment. Whether you are a shorline railroad needing assistance with track inspection, a transload operation with multiple yard tracks and switches, or a small business with a small siding, we specialize in all forms of track inspection. We are thoroughly trained, current and knowledgable in all track related FRA regulations including Part 213, Part 218 and Part 236. We provide a thorough but simple inspection report that is color coded to easily identify high priority defects. Following our initial inspection, we will provide you with a complete report identifying any immediate repair needs, short term needs and long term needs. Given our knowledge of contractor and track material pricing, we are also able to provide detailed scopes of work with very accurate budget numbers. With minimal overhead, our inspection fees cannot be matched and your first inspection is free of charge.
