Like the tracks themselves, design and construction of railroads and terminal facilities covers an incredibly broad range of topics and expertise. At Prime Engineering, we’ve got you covered from concept to completion and through ongoing maintenance.

Working on your next project will not be our first rail spike. Prime Engineering’s Transportation team offers decades of service to the railroad market. Our services cover the depth and breadth of the railroad industry and we have ongoing partnerships with the companies that drive rail service across the majesty of North America, including an in-house, railway-certified Survey Department. Our impressive line-up of partners includes Buchanan Branch Railroad; Canadian National; CSX Transportation; Detroit, Toledo, and Ironton Railroad; Georgia Northeastern Railroad; Norfolk & Western; Norfolk & Portsmouth Belt Line Railroad Co; and Norfolk Southern Railway Company. Our team has surveyed and/or designed track from coast to coast.

Rail facilities and projects for which Prime has provided solutions include energy facilities, loading/offloading infrastructure, industrial park track designs, manufacturing and distribution plants, transload and storage facilities, rail spurs, intermodal facilities, and public-sector railroad crossings.

What we’ve done for others, we can accomplish for you.
