Customer Success Stories
Railcare Diagnoses, Repairs Railcar Mechanism Failure for Stone Producer
A family-owned producer of landscaping and design stones approached G&W’s Railcare Inc. after noticing a specific line of stones was leaking from railcars during transit. The customer suspected failure of the securement hardware on the railcars’ bottom gates – allowing some stones, slightly smaller than a golf ball, to escape. After bringing in and assessing the company’s 20-car fleet, Railcare observed that previous maintenance and repair of the gates’ securement hardware had not been adequate.
