Not only are we absolute in meeting the original car builder's specifications and FRA and AAR requirements, but the Engineering and Quality Control Staff will devise and work with each customer for any needed or required changes.

Our 30+ acre complex can accommodate up to 250 cars and has 75,000 square feet of covered and enclosed buildings and production lines.

Accurate cost is prepared for each job. Plus each car is further analyzed for any problems or additional needs, as the car arrives at the complex and is switched to Texana lines. We keep in constant contact with the customer with cost estimates, status reports, documented repair reports and delivery schedules. No detail is overlooked; our rule is "follow-up, then follow-through on every detail and, do the job right."
