Why own a copy of the INDUSTRIAL TRACK INSPECTION GUIDE?
Many industry managers falsely think the serving rail carrier is responsible for inspecting and evaluating their tracks - that is a serious error in judgment. The serving railroad may tell you that your tracks need specific attention only after their train crews experienced an adverse or dangerous situation. Waiting for that call is senseless. Donít be surprised when they call to tell you what you should already know.
With an unsafe rail condition a train crew can refuse to use the track, or worse and your inbound and outbound freight service is interrupted. How much does that cost your firm?
How much do you pay your maintenance manger to look after your plant? An outside track inspection can cost $400 to $1,500 or more. For a fraction of that you can own the tool to help you evaluate your tracks. The INDUSTRIAL TRACK INSPECTION GUIDE.

Take the time to walk the entire length of your railroad track.
Carry the ITIG with its many photographic examples and illustrations of common defects for use in identifying potential problems and other track questions. Plus images of how tracks should look in the average industrial setting. Staying on top of your track situation is important.
Note defect location and detail on the handy track inspection form.
Then you are ready to build a maintenance plan.
