The Full Line

Standard Crossing

Our Standard StarTrack is designed for Cooper E-80 Loading with 60% impact; a long lasting, maintenance free crossing surface for freight, commuter, and light rail applications. Standard crossings are 8’ wide x 14” thick and are available in 3 lengths (5’, 7.5’, 17.5’). Custom pie-shaped pieces are available to meet the curvature of the track.

Heavy Duty Crossing

StarTrack HD Crossing Modules are the proven and preferred crossing of America’s largest ports and intermodal facilities. This is our solution to heavy traffic applications and areas with bad subgrade. HD crossings are 11’ wide, 16” thick and 5’ long. Custom pie-shaped pieces available to meet curvature of track.

Drip Track

StarTrack HD Crossing Modules are the proven and preferred crossing of America’s largest ports and intermodal facilities. This is our solution to heavy traffic applications and areas with bad subgrade. HD crossings are 11’ wide, 16” thick and 5’ long. Custom pie-shaped pieces available to meet curvature of track.For sites requiring containment of drips and spills, our system provides a durable and permanent solution that can be combined with other systems for larger containment volumes. Standard size is 5’ long by 11’ wide.

Rail Scale

Most weigh-in-motion rail scales require concrete approaches and foundations for the weigh cell. We team with rail scale manufactures to provide modular precast track support systems to meet scale requirements, allowing projects to be installed quickly with no doubts on quality.

Inspection Pit

Our vehicle/locomotive inspection pits provide a safe access for inspections and are easily customized with lighting, electrical, and stairs.

Conveyor Pit

Our custom built conveyor/unloading pits are engineered to meet AREMA Standards. Our systems install quickly with minimal QC required in the field, allowing conveying and track operations to begin soon after installation.

Wash Bay

StarTrack systems can be customized to provide drainage to center line of track into a French drain, creating easily serviceable Truck/Train-wash stations.

Conveyor Pit
