RailWorks uses high-production steel and tie gangs to efficiently complete larger-scale rehabilitation and new railroad construction projects. Our teams work closely with operating railroads, so we can do great work without slowing down your operations.


To meet work deadlines, our steel, rail and tie gangs know when to work independently or in tandem, and are outfitted with state-of-the-art equipment so they can work more efficiently than ever before.

Our experienced crews work jointly with Class I and regional railroad engineering and maintenance crews to perform combination (thermite and electric) field construction and repair welding services, as well as utility switch grinding.


Our track welding services can be built around tight work windows and train operations, so you can maintain efficient operations even when service is underway.

We use data to identify track geometry issues, so you can take action before they result in disruptions or delays. Powerful software allows our technicians to monitor risks in real-time, while vehicle platform options adapt to your rail environment and provide the flexibility your system demands.


If an issue is found, it’s automatically marked via GPS, so you’re never left guessing about where repairs or modifications should start. This makes for an easier track management experience across the board.

Track Geometry Testing

Undercutting services from RailWorks help ensure effective track drainage and a strong structural foundation, as well as proper track geometry. Our dedicated crew has decades of experience providing efficient undercutting services and is aided by a powerful computerized system that separates usable and unusable ballast and returns usable material back to the track.


This combination of experienced crews and cutting-edge technology allows the RailWorks team to be exceedingly efficient while still cost-effective. So, you can be confident you’ll make your deadlines — and your budget, too.
