Our Railcar Maintenance Division, which is M1003 Certified, inspects, repairs, and rebuilds railroad cars. By utilizing abundant bridge/jib cranes and industrial tie-downs, Altoona is able to combine equipment and expertise to provide the highest possible quality railcar services.

Under the direction of Tom Clerkin, Vice President of Railcar Administration, this division has been serving many dedicated customers with quality work in a cost effective manner. Our competitive labor rate and program quotes have resulted in a considerable amount of business. Our present customer base includes leasing companies, public utilities, short line and class I railroads. We purchase all our AAR governed car parts from AAR Quality Certified Facilities

With the support of other divisions we can offer the best pricing available due to our vast purchasing power. We have the capacity to build sub-assemblies for rebuild kits and new car construction. We can even roll side sheets for your covered hopper cars.

Our shop is very accessible, located on Norfolk Southern's main line between Philadelphia and Pittsburgh. Approximately one mile away is NS's Rose Yard. Crew changes occur there and that yard stages equipment going to the Juniata locomotive shop.

We carry an inventory of National Rotary Couplers, Yokes, and Components.
