Cleanup & Transfer
We are specialist in railway clean-up and transfer capabilities. Our specialized equip and highly trained personnel provide safe, quick, and cost effective solutions to your company’s needs.

Our core business is concentrated on rail :
- Clean-up
- Product recovery and disposition
- Load adjustments
- Track cleaning
- Load transfers

Track Clean-Up :
The service offered by Sibisi Engcor Engineers employs a special vacuum-aided track cleaner designed specifically to eliminate dust and remove 100% of material from the top of the ties which assists in the visual inspection of track for proper preventative maintenance. The vacuum equipment, when used in conjunction with the track cleaner’s broom, minimizes dust. With the broom
detached, the vacuum alone proves useful in removing spilled granular materials in difficult to reach locations, like switches.

Clean-Up & Remediation :
We provide site reclamation and remediation.Following derailments, most sites have damages to landscaping, roads, ditches, waterways, wooded areas and general terrain. We will stay on site and provide the necessary clean up and remedial services to put the site back to either its original state or a condition mutually agreed upon by the landowner and the railroad. We can provide this service very economically since we can start this process immediately following a cleanup situation,using many of the same personnel and equipment used during the clean-up process.

Professional prompt handling of all commodities including :
- Auto parts
- Lumber
- Grain fertilizer
- Plastics

- Food products
The versatility of our equipment allows us to do the transload either on rail or off. We can use our equipment to tow railcars, which allows us to operate  independently. We have the equipment and experience necessary to handle any type of load transfers, whether single commodity or multiple cars.
