A unique industry was created when Glenn Hulcher began servicing railroads more than 40 years ago. Hulcher Services pioneered derailment services with innovative techniques that clear the right-of-way quickly and reopen the railroad to traffic faster than any other company.
Our crews are highly trained and certified to work for all Class I railroads, and with over 40 years of rail experience Hulcher can respond to any derailment situation to re-open the tracks, remove any product and clean up the site faster than any company in the industry. We can also provide rerailing, clearing cars, stockpiling materials and commodities, engineering reconstruction, panel rail inventory, roadbed material, commodity salvage or transfers, load-out / tie-down of equipment, environmental services (hazmat response, remediation), and more.
Through the years, Hulcher has diversified our railroad service offerings to include pressure washing, load out and tie down services, locomotive service trucks and traction motor, idler and wheel changes, making us become one the leading contractors to the railroads.
Whether the call is for a mainline derailment or a loadout project, Hulcher crews can respond within one hour of your call, any time day or night. Our 24/7/365 call center and strategically-positioned divisions ensure that we can respond to wherever you need us.
