“Railinc’s new TrainFax website greatly improves access to information about rail equipment by consolidating data into a standardized report,” said Rob Drew, Railinc product manager. “It scans more than two million rail equipment records and hundreds of thousands of health alerts each time it generates a report, saving researchers both time and money. TrainFax users can be confident that they have current and accurate data to inform their equipment ownership decisions.”

A complete Railinc TrainFax report includes equipment ownership information, inspection reports, maintenance alerts, transportation restrictions, and equipment characteristics such as weight, dimensions, features, and specifications. Reports are available for all rail equipment types, including locomotives.
