When you require railcar maintenance – whether scheduled or due to a bad order – RB Railway Group Inc. is your first choice for top-quality, professional and expedited services for nearly all types of railcars (excluding tank cars). Our mobile crews stand ready to respond to your service needs quickly and efficiently, at your location, so that revenue-producing rolling stock is back in action as soon as possible.

Railroads can issue bad orders for a variety of reasons, causing your railcar to be removed from revenue service and prohibited from normal operations until proper repairs have been made.

The range of issues can vary from a known defect in manufacturing to damage during car loading or unloading, wheels, braking system, body damage and more.

In addition, many railcar lessees are required to return the units in as-delivered condition. In virtually all cases, such railcars will need to be “shopped” for inspection and/or repairs to restore them to as-delivered condition.

RB Railway Group can assist you with railcar maintenance and repair issues. Our company is AAR M-1003 QA Certified, so you know you are receiving the highest level of railcar maintenance professionalism available today.
