RailWorks’ Bridge Division responded promptly after a winter derailment caused heavy damage to a Nebraska Northeastern Railroad bridge in Osmond, Neb.
A crew of six mobilized quickly to arrive on site about 30 miles north of Norfolk by 6:30 a.m., and then worked 34 hours to perform extensive repairs to restore service. They replaced the entire north stringer cord and two caps, reframed the bent, put in a temporary frame bent and installed longitudinal bracing along with about 100 new ties and 10, 39-foot sticks of 112-lb. rail. Later, RailWorks returned to do a second phase of major repair, including structural steel work, deck work, and installing piling and ties.
