Duryea, Pa.-based PowerRail, Inc. has formed PowerRail Engine Systems, described as “a full-service engine company offering a complete line of new and remanufactured engines and engine components.”

Three new AAR M-1003 quality-certified facilities, PowerRail said, offer “a complete line of  parts and major components supporting EMD and GE engines, including Tier 0+ Emission Kits. In addition, EPA emission compliant equivalents are available on most major components.” The facilities provide “true reliability and quality for all demanding applications: rebuilt engines, and new and remanufactured power assemblies, governors, turbochargers, water, fuel, oil pumps and other engine related components.”

“We, as a company, have grown so much over the years,” noted CEO and Chairman of the Board Paul Foster. “We started as a distributor, but have evolved into manufacturing and remanufacturing, as well. PowerRail Engine Systems is a huge step for us. This engine line is very complex and required an additional set of checks and balances in quality, service and most important, performance. The addition of the three new facilities and the formation of this new company allows PowerRail to broaden our already extensive offering of parts and components and positions us as a true ‘one stop shop’ to the rail industry.”

Established in 2003 in Wilkes-Barre, Pa., the PowerRail corporate offices and main distribution center are now located on a multi-acre site in Duryea. The company offers a wide range of new and rebuilt rail-related parts and components including bearings and journal boxes, electrical rotating parts, engine components, compressors, pumps and motors, from its various manufacturing facilities across the US. In addition, PowerRail offers locomotive rebuilds, overhauls and mobile maintenance, and is a global supplier with locations in Europe and Australia.
