Rail Equipment Engineering Support

Railcar Modeling.

We have experience inspecting and documenting rail equipment which can help you to make informed decisions on purchasing or rebuilding equipment.

We can:

conduct assessments and inspections on railroad equipment for purchase, refurbishment, or rebuild consideration.  

Provide complete reports of the equipment condition which include equipment specifications, assessment of systems, condition reports, and photo catalogs.

Equipment Lifecycle Assessments.

We have extensive experience in fleet engineering and technical support services for passenger railcar and locomotive fleets. Providing sufficient engineering and technical support to mechanical teams increases the reliability, serviceability, and maintainability of equipment. This is important in keeping equipment in service and minimizing extraneous maintenance costs.

We can:

provide engineering and technical support for your mechanical and maintenance services teams to allow for more optimized maintenance operations.

Conduct defect tracking for equipment to optimize fleet reliability and provide metrics to mechanical staff to aid in expediting repairs.

Utilize CAPA and RCA tools to address system defects and increase fleet maintainability and serviceability.

Provide Document control and management for technical documents, manuals, schematics, and ensure important drawings are made available to mechanical personnel.

Support technical projects by creating implementation and task management plans.

Create procedures for mechanical tasks that include viability and cost assessments, as well as valuable information captured and archived from the experience of mechanical personnel.

Create technical notices for compliance issues, manufacturer updates, and retrofits.

Develop locomotive rebuild specifications or railcar refurbishment specifications and manage the rebuild and refurbishment process including inspections, reports, budget assessments.

Conduct equipment life cycle assessments by assessing your current equipment to determine the remaining service life and costs associated with keeping that equipment in service to allow you to make informed decisions on your fleet.
