One of TTR’s most important roles is maintaining the tracks within the USRC. Track maintenance involves a variety of different tasks which can include replacing track ties, repairing sections of track, seasonal construction and repair work at various spots across the system.
TTR track workers are expected to maintain these tracks with the utmost care while performing jobs such as changing crossties, lubricating and adjusting switches, and tightening loose track components.
In order to keep the USRC tracks in the best conditions, rail inspections are performed regularly. This is done by using Hi-Rail trucks, inspection cars and handheld inspection devices. TTR workers perform a thorough inspection by visually assessing every part of the track, which includes sub grade, rail, ties, ballast, switches and turnouts.
TTR conducts these regular track maintenance procedures and inspections to meet the high standards of TTR, as well as governmental and regulatory authorities.
