Our team of industry experts, specialists and associates provide practical solutions through investigative research and analysis to the most difficult railway engineering problems. ARRT also develops standards and policies for better track maintenance using the most modern methodologies available to ensure optimal track /train interaction and component life. As a key developer of innovative track technology, ARRT combines analytical tools available in ComputerAided Design, Finite Element Analysis, and event simulation with data from laboratory and field-testing to design better track components. ARRT’s experiences from derailment investigations and failure analysis has led to the development of our track/train interaction software called

ASET. ASET considers parameters such as multiple vehicle wheels, articulation of the train, train action, power location/ distribution in the train, track curvature, grade and thermal effects. Proper track/power asset management cannot be achieved without track/train interaction that respects these parameters. ArcelorMittal USA - Steelton 215 S.

According to certain information, softwood tie plugs hold the spike better than hardwood tie plugs. Cedar (soft wood) tie plugs do not have to be treated because they will absorb the treatment that the ties received. Density of cedar is lighter than hardwood, thus, when the cedar tue plugs are driven in spike holes, it does not damage the ties. We deliver accross North America and Mexico. RTA Member.

In-track welding, using either a hi-rail truck or Porta Plant, is performed by our crews doing crop and weld, closure or repair welding. New construction, steel gangs and relay operations are just some examples of the applications for flash butt welding. TrackSTAR® track testing services, including track strength, track geometry and rail profile is another contracting service provided by Holland. Our fleet of hi-rail trucks mark exceptions and give you daily strip charts and exception reports. Tie summary and statistic reports give you data for maintenance planning. Holland’s fixed plants weld new and relay rail for Class 1 railroads, shortlines, transit systems and contractors. These plants are located throughout the U.S.A. Whether using your own rail train or one of Holland’s, we can deliver the rail directly to your job site. Many of these plants assemble turnouts as well. New equipment is designed and built to our, or your, exacting specifications. If you need a Mobilewelder®, fixed welding plant (rail train racks, pushers, presses, loading and unloading cars), TrackSTAR® testing vehicles or customized equipment, contact Holland. We also supply components for rail cars, including products to protect the cargo. This includes locks to hold containers to the railcar and securement systems for steel or paper rolls. Chain tiedown systems hold concrete ties while in transit. In addition we provide rail car services including rail car cleaning, car re­p air, locomotive servicing and trans­ loading operations.

Data are graphically represented on GPS-derived route maps that can be overlaid on satellite, terrain and street-view maps. Track condition, exception and other reports are generated by menu-driven search tools that can be customized for each user. A Track Analyst Enterprise System, which connects to an Oracle or MS SQL Server database, allows railways to combine and store all of their track test data in a single database. Rangecam’s comprehensive suite of analysis tools enables Enterprise users to analyze and report on wear conditions, and plan system-

wide maintenance programs to extend rail and tie life. Rangecam programs’ ability to accommodate track geometry, GRMS, rail and wheel profile and defect data from various sources makes Rangecam an effective tool for all reporting, analysis and maintenance planning needs.
