Facility Spotlight: PowerRail Locomotive Services
In 2014, PowerRail expanded their capabilities to support the railroad industry by purchasing a locomotive repair facility in Monroe, Georgia. From there came the birth of PowerRail Locomotive Services (PLS), and shortly thereafter, PowerRail Mobile Maintenance, also housed at the same location.
PowerRail Locomotive Services is located on 17+ acres just east of Atlanta, Georgia, offering locomotive and freight car services. Our capabilities include light repair, re-wires, traction motor and truck work, engine and/or engine component change outs, and equipment upgrades.
“With today’s economy, more and more customers are choosing to upgrade or overhaul their existing locomotives, versus purchasing new,” said Adam Earnheart, General Manager at PLS. “That’s where we come in. As an established vendor and trusted partner, many of our customers are turning to us for locomotive rebuilds.”
With quality workmanship and quick turn-around time, PLS can be an extension of your operation. Every locomotive that is brought into our facility undergoes a detailed inspection with tear down reports. The PLS Rebuild Program includes complete overhauls of engine components, electrical rotating equipment, heat exchange, air products, truck work, and more.
PowerRail is a United States-based company, with several locations in various parts of the world.
