Supply Side: Cathcart Rail/The Andersons, Pandrol, Ricardo

Columbus, Ohio-based Carthcart Rail on July 8 completed its acquisition of The Andersons’ railcar repair business. Also, global rail fastening supplier Pandrol has provided an Ultrasonic Rail Testing Kit to SBS Transit Ltd. in Singapore; and Ricardo and Danish firm PantoInspect will bring PanMon pantograph monitoring technology to railroads across North America and Latin America.

Pandrol’s under tie pads are manufactured using about 5 pounds (or 2.3 kilograms) of end-of-life tires per tie, which the company said produces “a carbon footprint that is less than half of the same product using virgin material.” It noted that “[e]very kilometer of railway track installed with Pandrol’s Under Sleeper [tie] Pads saves 3,000 tires from landfill or burning.”
