RepairRepair Shops


FreightCar America aims to assist you in all your railcar needs, offering a full complement of railcar maintenance service and repair capabilities. Our shops are managed and operated by our subsidiary FreightCar Rail Services, LLC (FCRS). FCRS and its predecessors have been in business since 1980 and have long-standing customer relationships and retention that serve as testament to our commitment to quality and customer satisfaction.

We are a full service provider that offers railcar repair, storage, fabrication and finishing services. We also offer comprehensive railcar inspection and consulting services. FCRS maintenance and repair experts can quickly diagnose and service your cars with the goal of minimizing costly out of service time for your valuable railcar assets. FCRS shops combine capacity with the latest technology and we can leverage these capabilities to customize a service plan which best meets your needs.

We have three locations, two in Nebraska serviced by both the Union Pacific Railroad and the BNSF Railway; and one in Indiana serviced by the CSXT. Our strategic locations along Class I rail lines are ideal to minimize downtime for your railcars.

Location, size and technology aren’t the only advantages of our facilities. All of our facilities are M-1003 and M-214 certified. In fact, the only railcars we do not service are tank cars.

FCRS shops offer a mix of flexible capacity, storage capabilities and technology to fully service your railcars. We are your one-stop source for railcar maintenance and repair. Please contact our Sales Manager, Kevin Koepke at 308.382.3880 or kkoepke@freightcar.net to discuss the shop solutions that best fulfill your company's needs.
