Safety in Operations

  • Moving railroad equipment is dangerous, specialized work. Don't settle for fly-by-night, bargain operations when it comes to handling your equipment and commodities!

  • Annual safety and operating rules training and periodic compliance monitoring keeps our team moving your goods safely.

  • Daily job briefing forms and operating procedures are customized to meet the needs of your facility. Day to day reporting sheets are fully auditable by safety and customer management teams in concise, easy-to-read formats.

Clear and Secure Radio Communications

  • Our team can bring its own radio communication system to limit interference with customer operations.

  • Radio communications are conducted on AAR frequencies enabling interoperability with connecting carriers. In addition, communications can be set up for analog or digital transmission. If information security is a concern, digital encryption is also available.

  • Our radio systems are equipped with noise-cancellation technology and "emergency alarm" features to alert other crew members to a fall or other emergency.

Professional, Customer-focused Service

  • CT&V Railroad switches on YOUR schedule.

  • You can decrease or eliminate switching, weighing, and demurrage charges as our switching rates are less than a typical line-haul carrier's tariff switching rates.

  • Our team members wear easily identifiable, high-visibility uniforms for a safe and professional appearance.

Reliable Motive Power Solutions

  • No locomotive? No problem. We partner with a quality locomotive supplier that can provide and support reliable, turn-key motive power as part of your switching solution.

  • We'll work with you to determine the best fit for your operation from large 6-axle locomotives to small railcar movers.

  • Our team performs daily locomotive inspections to ensure each locomotive is in safe condition and ready for the day's operations.
