Dispatching

RGP Transit Group provides safe, reliable, professional around the clock railroad dispatching services for both small and large shortline railroads.

Originally dispatch services were provided for parent company Rio Grande Pacific Corporation (RGPC) subsidiary railroads out of its Nebraska Central Railroad office. RGPC recognized a need in the marketplace to provide affordable third party dispatching to other railroads in the shortline railroad industry. In 2016, the dispatching center was relocated to Fort Worth using RailComm computer aided dispatch control system. In addition to a centralized location, we added an experienced management team from within the railroad dispatching community.

We dispatch over 2,000 miles and our clients include RGPC subsidiaries Nebraska Central Railroad, New Orleans and Gulf Coast, Idaho Northern, and Wichita, Tillman and Jackson, DMVW Railroad, Mississippi Export Railroad, Natchez Railway, Texas Pacifico, Southwestern Railroad and Denton County Transportation Authority.

Maintenance of Way

RGP Transit Group provides crucial maintenance of way (MOW) services specifically for commuter lines and regional railroads with demanding operating requirements. In addition to track maintenance, RGP Transit offers MOW services on all right of way, track, crossings, signals and bridges, as well as passenger-populated areas to support fleet safety, accessibility, performance and dependability, and customer satisfaction. Well-trained and knowledgeable staff ensures inspections and repairs are in compliance with Federal Railroad Authority (FRA) Track Safety Standards, and a proactive, preventative maintenance approach improves overall asset management throughout the systems’ life cycle.

 

RGPTG currently provides maintenance of way service to the A-train, Denton County Transportation Authority (DCTA)’s 22-mile commuter line. For more information please visit: https://www.dcta.net/
