TTX
Pooling of railcars affords railroads the flexibility to respond to changing market conditions and enables them to meet demand without needing to invest in redundant equipment. We make that investment on the industry’s behalf, promoting environmentally sound practices and economic efficiency. Unlike cars owned by the individual railroads, TTX Company railcars do not have to be returned empty to the owning railroad after being unloaded by another railroad. Instead, the railcars can be reloaded and transported to any other destination by any railroad. This practice avoids unnecessary fuel waste helping the rail industry strengthen its green footprint.

We invest continuously in equipment research and development, using sophisticated engineering expertise in a number of ways. Our industry-leading technology systems together with our accounting and financial services expertise enable TTX Company to offer railcar management services such as AA repair auditing, shop car tracking and damaged/destroyed car processing. We maintain our car fleet to the highest standards continuing a long-term view towards quality, safety and environmental sound practices. We have close ties with welding schools and groups throughout the United States.

This is TTX Company. Proud heritage of equipment design and operations offering cost-competitive freight car solutions. Best information. Best cars. Best prices. Forward Thinking.
