Specialty Machinery

Turntables. Transfer tables. Drop tables. Wheel Machines. Railroad shops rely upon highly specialized pieces of equipment to keep their repair facilities operating at peak efficiency. FMW provides prompt, capable specialty machinery repair. Find out how our skillsets, and a 50,000 square foot machine shop, can be put use for you.


Encompassing every facet

Freight or passenger, vintage or modern. Our expertise encompasses all facets of railroad equipment operations, inspection, maintenance, and repair. Our Team has worked on hundreds of mainline and short line diesel-electric locomotives, and have overhauled multiple steam locomotives.


Peace of Mind

Through transparency, communication, and dedication to craft, we provide our clients with peace of mind that work will be done as described and up to standard. The rail industry, in particular, is unusually abusive to equipment, where duty cycles, grit, and tonnage often dictate the availability of a given asset. We always keep this at the fore when approaching a project - embodying the mantra of "expect the unexpected."

Ultimately, however, our greatest strength lies in our ability to communicate clearly the details and nuances of railway mechanics in a manner that our clients understand and, in the end, enables them to make key decisions regarding equipment repair and refurbishment. Whether you seek to hire FMW to handle a project soup-to-nuts, or you'd like us to diagnose a problem and coach your crews to repair the equipment, we are ready to provide you peace of mind.


Let's get rolling!
