Repair - Tank

As a certified M-1002 shop with the AAR, Iron Horse is capable of performing repairs, qualifications, and other services for tank car owners. Iron Horse's full service facility has been designed for tank car customers primarily. This starts with a cleaning facility which is capable of handling most commodities moved in a railcar and ends with the ability to perform repairs, qualifications, service equipment maintenance, and coatings application. 


We have focused the design of our repair facilities to encourage quick turn times for our customer's railcars. We understand that the goal is to get railcars in and out of the shop as quickly as possible and place daily emphasis on driving down our turn times.
