Railroads

Over the many years Hamilton Construction has been in business, we have had the opportunity to build RR trestles for various owners. Many Class 1, Regional, and Shortline operators are facing the prospect of having to upgrade and rehabilitate their infrastructure in order to maintain or increase capacity. In response to the increased demand, Hamilton Construction has made the decision to devote resources to our branch division, Hamilton Rail.

What makes us different is we realize that Railroads need to run trains in order to make money. We look at each project closely to develop designs, methods, and materials to allow train traffic through with minimal interruptions while maintaining an aggressive construction schedule. We work closely with each owner to make sure their needs are being met during the construction process. Our goal is to build each project as quickly as possible and get our clients back to their core business, running trains. We specialize in Design/Build projects which help our clients get the best finished product tailored to their needs.

We operate throughout the Western United States. Whether it's new construction or rehab of your existing structures, give us a call, and we'll be happy to come and look at your specific needs. Click here to watch our video presentation about Hamilton Rail.
