Typical problems encountered on heavy haul lines also occur on transit lines and include shelling, spalling, side wear, plastic flow, dipped welds, corrugation, and fatigue. Transit lines also face noise and ride quality challenges. Rail grinding is considered the most effective maintenance practice to control these issues and maximize value from the rail asset. Loram's L-Series Specialty Rail Grinders are flexible enough to work on a variety of transit, short line, and Class I railroads while powerful enough to perform the necessary maintenance within tight work schedules.

Loram's L-Series Specialty Rail Grinders have the mobility transit railroads demand. These 8 -16 stone grinders can be rapidly transported at highway speeds to reach any work site.
