Self-Loading Rail Train

Doing the heavy lifting for you

Self-Loading Rail Train

Conventional rail trains require that the first rail loaded onto each tier of a rail train be manually guided throughout the length of the rail train consist.

Our engineers and planners at Herzog saw a need for a more user-friendly machine to load continuous welded rail (CWR) onto rail trains for transport.

Easing the burden

Herzog’s Self-Loading Rail Train is fully-operated and maintained by Herzog. The train uses a guide running from one end to the other to keep CWR on track and allow safe movement into position on the train.

Capable of handling 50 rails up to 141lbs, this machine is interchangeable among all Class 1 railroads and compatible with conventional unloading equipment or the Herzog RUM.
