Our Services: 

Panelized Turnouts

A&K can furnish fully panelized turnouts completely assembled and shipped in two to four sections, based on turnout size, in our fleet of custom panel cars for easy unloading and quick installation. Turnouts can also be pre-plated, completely disassembled and shipped to your job site. Alternatively, the switch panel can remain assembled and the rest of the turnout can be disassembled and all can be shipped to your job site by truck or rail car for easy reassembly at your site, minimizing your need for specialized construction crews. Contact your A&K representative for more details.

Track Removal

A&K’s standards for quality, service and reliability carry over to our track removal capabilities. With dozens of crews located across the country, our specialists can be on your job in 48 hours or less when needed. We have an extensive fleet of track removal equipment, our own crews and the bonding and insurance capabilities that allow A&K the flexibility to tailor your projects and our strengths to fit your specific requirements. If you need us to handle a particular phase or to take full responsibility from top to bottom, we can satisfy your needs. So, whether you have a few hundred yards or a few hundred miles of jointed track or continuous welded rail, A&K can help remove that rail according to the needs of our customers.

Welding / CWR

A&K has a complete CWR services group which can fill your every need with regard to continuous welded rail. A&K can pick up and deliver relay CWR or weld new or relay rail and ship it direct to your site.
