Entrepreneur, Michael Burcham, once asked of a young intern “What do you do well?”
It’s a great question for a business to ask of itself, too.
We sat down and looked at it, and suddenly, we understood a lot better what we ought to be doing.
Railroad construction and maintenance seems pretty specific, but there are actually many aspects to the railroad.
So here’s a list of some of the things we’ve done lately:
Pre-Cast Concrete Railroad Grade Crossings
Cross Tie Replacement
Concrete-Embedded Track Renovations
In-Track Grain Hopper Installation
That’s a short list of the larger scope of projects we’re adept at doing.
“What do you do well?”
And here’s what you’ll find us doing almost daily after an inspection from the Roadmaster or Track Inspector that nets one of our clients a 30-day notice or a shut down – because sometimes things just break:
Cross Elevation in Track
Broken or Worn Rail
Broken Joint Bars & Bolts
Yes. We’re pretty good at a number of things, but this is only a small part of what’s involved in railroad construction and maintenance. There’s still signals and the handling of the locomotives and cars, but we’ll stick with the track work, thank you very much.
