ARS Freight Car Services

When you require freight car maintenance – whether scheduled or due to a bad order – Appalachian Railcar Services is your first choice for top-quality, professional and expedited services for nearly all types of railcars (tank cars at select facilities). Our facilities and crews are ready to respond to your service needs quickly and efficiently, so that your revenue-producing rolling stock is back in action as soon as possible.

Railroads can issue bad orders for a variety of reasons, causing your freight car to be removed from revenue service and prohibited from normal operations until proper repairs have been made.

The range of issues can vary from a known defect in manufacturing to damage during car loading or unloading, wheels, braking system, body damage and more.

In addition, many freight car lessees are required to return the units in “as-delivered condition.” In virtually all cases, such freight cars will need to be “shopped” for inspection and/or repairs to restore them to as-delivered condition.
