Welcome to Track Guy Consultants -- Your Best Source for Railroad Track Training, Railroad Track Inspection, Trackwork Training, FRA and APTA Training.
To continually educate ourselves, newcomers and veterans in the railroad industry, to share our experiences, our knowledge and our ideas -- thus enabling the rail industry to work towards combining Safety, Quality, and Efficiency in order to maintain the highest levels of Integrity and innovation while preserving the art of Railroad Track Construction for the United States of America and throughout the world.
The Rail Renaissance is upon us and Passenger Transportation Systems are being constructed in cities all across the United States of America. Tax credits have been implemented to help Short Lines upgrade infrastructure to accommodate the ever increasing loads that the Class 1 Railroads are hauling while cities and states are generating funding for the construction.
We must build and maintain the track structure the right way or Railroad Safety, Quality, and Integrity will be compromised and this great industry will (literally and figuratively) derail. At present, there are not enough skilled and experienced workers in this rail industry to handle this growing opportunity. There will be new Track Guys on the block that need to be trained and mentored until they gain the experience that is necessary in order to maintain the absolute integrity of track construction and safeguard the riding public. This must be our #1 Priority. Quality of Construction, Safety of the Track Structure and a Responsible Attitude toward passenger safety is a MUST.
Track Guy Consultants provides that "warm fuzzy feeling" of knowing that your track is safe. Together, we can and will make a difference.
