A firm foundation for railroad performance.

For railroads to meet their revenue and growth objectives, it’s increasingly vital to maintain a high-performing infrastructure. Ensuring a firm foundation across the railroad system is paramount to protecting the performance of the track and the operational effectiveness of the railroad itself. Strategic solutions for proper ballast maintenance and reliable drainage are key to maintaining this important structural foundation.
With a rich heritage of ensuring infrastructure integrity and optimal track performance, Loram is recognized as the industry leader in track maintenance. Loram offers a broad portfolio of equipment and services with the experience to help deliver performance and reliability for any railroad:
Corrective and proactive ballast and roadbed drainage maintenance services from Loram resolve a host of common and cascading challenges that threaten track infrastructure, providing benefits and sustainable impacts that extend beyond assuring structural integrity:
