Railroad Maintenance


Routine railroad maintenance is vital in avoiding safety issues and unforeseen track outages. American Track’s maintenance professionals can identify areas of concern before they become violations or present hazards. We offer a variety of inspection plans ranging from monthly to yearly inspections, which cover everything from single track sidings to manufacturing facilities with several miles of track.


Train track maintenance and inspections go hand in hand. Our maintenance team is equipped to fix any problems identified by our inspectors or other third-party inspection companies. We offer several maintenance programs depending on the needs of our customers. We take care of routine maintenance items such as rail lubrication and switch cleaning as well as irregular maintenance items such as switch point welding and rail replacement.

Keeping the Tracks Up And Running

We Are Here to Help

We offer a variety of maintenance services that are sure to keep your rail tracks in good conditions for the extent of their lifetime. Some of the many services that we offer include:

Rail Inspection

Preventative maintenance is the best way to avoid safety issues and unforeseen track outages. Have your rails inspected so you can identify potential damage before it becomes a more serious issue. American Track offers maintenance programs that can fit any customer’s needs. Inspection requirements vary depending on the type of rail track, so it is important to be informed on the regulations that apply to your circumstances. 

Track Rehabilitation

Track sections naturally degrade over time. Keep your tracks in their best possible condition with our track rehabilitation services that are sure to keep them performing consistently. American Track can rehabilitate an entire track section from sub-ballast to rail.

Emergency Services

In track outage and unsafe conditions, we will do everything we can to get you back in service in a timely manner. Emergencies can strike at any time and require immediate response. We are happy to get to your tracks in the event of an emergency and get them back into working condition as soon as possible. 

Unfortunately, maintenance issues are not always addressed. Unresolved issues often get worse and can lead to unsafe working conditions, derailments or other track outages. We keep inventory of common rail items for situations just like this. Whether it’s a derailment or a broken joint bar, we can get you rolling again in no time.
