Everyone at Coldwater Engineering has extensive experience working in the railroad engineering field.  Plainly put, we serve the railroad industry.  This is what we do and why the firm was created.  The Coldwater Engineering team can meet the following needs for any railroad client:

  • Water Resources
  • Environmental Permitting
  • Survey
  • Emergency Response
  • General Civil Engineering

We have completed work on nearly a thousand Class I railroad projects that have taken us into 23 States across the country and given us a wide range of experience.

Our Staff are active members of the American Railway Engineering and Maintenance-of-Way Association (AREMA) serving on both Committee 1 (Roadway and Ballast), Subcommittee 3 (Natural Waterways) and Team 41 (Track Maintenance Steering Team).  We have attended and supported the annual AREMA conference each year since 2012.  We also attend and support the Railroad Environmental Conference.

Coldwater Engineering has a long-term Master Services Agreement (MSA) with Union Pacific Railroad to provide a wide variety of services.  The staff at Coldwater has a history of design excellence, responsiveness, and exceptional client service and because of this we are UPRR’s preferred provider for bridge and culvert studies.  We have also joined into a Continual Services Agreement (CSA) with Montana Rail Link and are looking to execute more long-term contracts with other Class I, Class II, and Short Line railroads.

If you have been mislead by other firms on their capabilities, or find that they do not understand how the railroads operate; now is the time to try Coldwater Engineering.  We are a railroad service firm, and our years of experience dedicated to this field shine through in our work.
