We’re building it as a reference for Mechanical Department personnel in North American Freight Railroads as well as a place for rail aficionados to learn more about freight cars. We’ll be starting with tools to assist with determining interchangeability for side frames and bolsters, then moving on to a tool for calculating spring capacity. Meanwhile, we’re also building a catalog of freight car components to assist you in locating suppliers.
Suppliers: If you’d like to have your products included here, please Contact Us
We’re also working on a chatbot to help answer your questions.
Please help us test it out! We’ll use your interactions to help make it better.
(The bot currently knows about a handful of railroad terms and can recognize a variety of part numbers, particularly truck and draft system components)
