Inspections

Derailments due to poorly maintained rail systems can cause property loss, production delays, clean-up and track replacement costs. Monthly track inspections are necessary to prevent these incidents. TGS track inspectors are trained technicians who evaluate rail systems in all types of facilities. Inspectors examine the condition of all rail components, looking for many types of defects, including but not limited to the following:

  • Rail Condition – broken ends, excessive wear, joint gaps
  • Spike Condition
  • Tie Condition – rotted, split, level and spacing
  • Drainage Condition – buried rail, standing water
  • Vegetation, debris, and trash

Partnering with TGS to perform regular monthly inspections will identify and prioritize defects for repair is an investment in your rail network that makes financial sense.
