Rail Plowing

Rail plowing is a quick, effective way to install cable and conduit along railway rights-of-way. Our proprietary rail-mounted plows facilitate the installation or upgrading of fiber optic cable and signal wire. We designed our rail equipment with flexibility in mind, allowing it to bury a few conduits to more than two dozen conduits simultaneously. Our on-rail ballast clean-up equipment gets rail lines back to active use almost immediately.
