At the Charlotte Roadway Facility new machines and parts are designed and built far superior to anything else on the market. Other machines are purchased in scrap condition and rebuilt and upgraded to better than new condition to realize savings over the cost of a new machine.
Charlotte Roadway Shop
Road mechanics are placed across the system and assigned to each major maintenance gang to ensure all 3,000 pieces of roadway equipment on our system operate at peak efficiency.
The Roadway Material Yard constructs and ships turnouts, track panels, switch point derails and other track components to the field along with reclaiming that track material which is returned.
