Project Management

Are you planning to build new track or complete major track maintenance? If you are we can be your greatest asset.

Aubrey Andrews, former Manager of Track Construction and Maintenance with a major Class 1 railway, has now joined our staff. He can do an initial audit of your requirements, cost out the project, develop and lead the tendering process to construction contractors, monitor the construction work as it is being done and do a final inspection of the work performed.

This project management process will take a load off your mind and will save you money, as Mr. Andrews is a true professional in this area and will act on your behalf to ensure you get the best value for your investment.

Development of Policies and Procedures

Are you having problems in your rail operations and you require development of policies and procedures? If the answer is "yes", let us know. We can evaluate your operations and develop policies and procedures to drastically reduce your problems.

Also, we have recently completed a new rule book for industries, using the Canadian Rail Operating Rules (CROR) as its basis. In addition, we have developed procedures for safe rail car switching operations, which is included in the rule book.

Track Inspections

Do you have a concern regarding the condition of your track? If so, we can help.

We will perform a complete inspection of your rail plant paying close attention to drainage, condition of rail and ties, switches, cross level of rails, curves, etc. Upon completion we will outline our findings and recommendations in a professionally bound report.

General or Specific Audits

Are you having problems such as derailments, accidents or even close calls and you are unsure as to the cause or what to do? Again we can help.

We have the expertise in all areas of railroad operations and will come to your location and audit your track, equipment and processes. We will then outline our findings and recommendations in a professionally bound report.

Locomotive Inspection

Is your locomotive not working the way it used to and you lack the expertise to know what the problem is? We have the expertise!

We will send our locomotive expert to your plant to do a complete inspection. He will then outline to you in a professional report his findings and recommendations. We can also act on your behalf to select the best option to get you back up and running.
