Railroad Track Risk Management

$5K ARC Derailment Warranty 2009*.

ARC warrantees all track labor work for 2 years from the date of the track inspection, regardless of the railroad contractor that does the track work providing, ARC “Makes the call,” by doing the inspections to determine the track work needed if any & post repair/construction track inspection, if required.

1) Allen Railroad Consulting will perform two complete Railroad Track Safety Inspection Report and file it with your company.

2) ARC will do two additional periodic checks per year to see that your company's track stays in good shape. These checks are called drop-byes. ARC will contact you 24 hours before we will be in the area. If you do not want a follow up inspection at that time, we will contact you the next time we are going to be in the area.

3) If the results of our first inspection reveals that repairs are needed, ARC will use one drop-by as a Pre-Construction consultation with the contractor who will be doing the work. The other drop-by will be used as a Post-Construction consultation to see that the work was completed as proposed. Your company may also use a drop-by to reactivate a section of track that has not been used for a while (a FRA requirement).

4) The FRA requires that a Railroad Track Safety Inspection be performed in the case of any unforeseen change in your railroad track condition. The FRA describes these changes as in the case of, incident reports or special reports relating to flood, fire or other such incident. Your company may call us out at anytime for these reports. These reports are intended to be used to file a claim with your company's insurance carrier, FEMA or other use.

When Railroad track repair or track construction is needed there are dozens of railroad contractor companies you can call on. And when a company needs the services of a railroad contractor they can get dozen of different ideas as to what track work is needed and how it should be done.

As it is in sports, we all know the players, but few of us know the referees. Unless your company has someone that actually works in the railroad business, how does the company know they are getting done what actually needs to be done, not more or not less.

ARC can make the right call! 

For the price of a track inspection, ARC will determine what your track needs done, no matter which railroad contractor does the work, using ARC’s more than 35 years experience providing technical track inspections; not inspections based on just doing the work.

While a track contractor can spend 20 years and never know why they change the tie or rail that they change. Technical track inspectors are the ones who know why the particular ties and rails are being changed. Most railroad contractor’s track inspectors have never been technically trained. All ARC Track Inspectors are technically trained. ARC Track Inspectors training program results are available to any company that asks for them. Sure most contractors know how to do good track work, but determining what actually needs to be done is not their job. ARC is so confident in our service that:

ARC warrantees all track labor work for 2 years regardless of the railroad contractor that does the track work providing, ARC “Makes the call,” by doing the inspections to determine the track work needed & post track inspection.
