When you’ve worked on 26,000 vehicles, you develop the expertise to support your client’s operations. From vehicle maintenance plans and procedures, to dispatch playbooks for emergency situations, LTK provides the experience and knowledge to enhance and improve maintenance and transportation programs of all types. Like the train itself, every component of a rail system must be expertly designed and constructed. Our systems engineering services cover every phase of rail project development. From the investigation of overhead contact system (OCS) and traction power substation (TPSS) failures, to signal system training and tunnel emission evaluations, LTK provides the experience and knowledge to enhance and improve wayside reliability and functionality. Every component of a rail system must be operated, dispatched and supported, and our expertise can help transportation departments enhance their day-to-day activities, and support efficiency improvements to all processes.

Our deep bench of rail vehicle and systems specialists are ready to troubleshoot, perform studies, support equipment implementation, provide in-house training, analyze and prepare repair plans, develop procedures, recommend guidelines, and support modifications to improve commuter rail, light rail, heavy rail, subway, locomotive, coach, cab car, and streetcar fleet and wayside infrastructure reliability and efficiency.

LTK is routinely called upon to perform forensic investigations of failures, derailments or incidents. We have the expert staff to immediately, and in confidence, react and travel to the affected transit agency or Railroad to lead or support the evaluation of any incident.
