Rail Engineering

Class 1 railroads trust our rail engineer teams to plan, design and manage their track and yard expansion projects as if we were an extension of their staff. Rail-served intermodal yards and distribution centers are among TranSystems’ specialties.  For passenger rail, our projects range from new line feasibility studies and planning to maximizing the public benefits of existing commuter rail facilities by linking them to other transportation options in multi-modal transit centers. 

Our expertise encompasses planning, engineering, and construction for freight and passenger main track infrastructure, terminal facilities, and commuter and light rail systems. For both railroads and industrial companies that depend on rail distribution, we closely integrate analyses of rail operation requirements with facilities planning and design.

From the world’s longest rail flyovers, massive structures designed to eliminate freight traffic bottlenecks at busy rail crossings, to extended grade separations that give cities the freedom of traffic flow on their streets, to central station master plans and historic station renovations, to capacity improvement of existing main tracks and yards, we deliver total rail engineering solutions.
