Texas & Northern Railway Company Services

Transtar can offer seven day-a-week common carrier or contract, in-plant switching service to accommodate a customer’s switching needs while improving safety and efficiency. When volumes warrant, we can dedicate a crew, or offer multiple switching options to get your railcars on the right track, all the while making sure your management personnel are kept in the communication loop. Switching services include train assembly and disassembly, storing and classifying cars and more.

Transtar can provide other on-site rail transportation services, including railcar loading and unloading, railcar inspection and prep, railcar repair and cleaning, and on-site or mobile maintenance services.

Many of our locations are Class III common carrier railroads that serve specific geographic regions with direct rail connectivity to the national rail network, along with transload services, as well as developable industrial sites for new rail-served businesses. Several locations provide 24/7 service today, and we can provide flexible service frequency to meet your needs.

Transtar has available track space and offers economic short- and long-term railcar storage solutions at a variety of locations. Our connections with Class I partners, as well as the option to group cars by specified categories, provide flexibility and reliability, and enables fluid movement across our footprint.

The benefits to using our company’s railroads for railcar storage are:

  • A safety-focused operation to ensure that your assets remain in good condition
  • Railcar inspection and repair services
  • Extensive coverage
  • Interchanges with most Class I railroads
  • Competitive rates
  • Flexible terms and service
  • Single point of contact to help you find the best storage locations based on your needs

Transtar can provide other services for industrial customers beyond in-plant switching, such as track, locomotive, railcar, and facility maintenance. On-site and mobile services are available.

We understand the importance of keeping railcars in service and doing so by making quality repairs that meet AAR standards. Safety is our top priority, making sure that our locomotive and railcar repair services are performed by experienced and knowledgeable technicians. Our expert technicians can handle repairs on both locomotives and railcars. Whether you have a locomotive with a bad generator or a railcar in need of new wheels, our team is up for the job—and we do it with attention to detail and safety.

Services Offering & Capabilities:

  • Full-service freight car repair
  • Mobile or on -site repair and inspection
  • Wreck damage
  • Welding
  • Fabrication and assembly
  • Staging and storage yards
  • Daily service from multiple Class 1’s
  • People, facilities and processes to handle large, multi-car programs with ease

Rail is often the most economical way to ship, but what if your facility isn’t rail-served? Transloading combines the advantages of rail with truck or barge. Combining these methods of transportation offers shippers cost savings, flexibility and the opportunity to expand business and market reach.
