Industrial Railcar Shunting

Trackmobile is a member of the Marmon/Berkshire Hathaway GLOBAL RAILCAR MOVER GROUP, the leading manufacturers of bi-modal railcar shunting equipment and Gen-Set locomotives internationally.

Today, as part of Berkshire Hathaway and Marmon Holdings, Inc., Trackmobile continually sets new standards for railcar movement equipment with innovations in efficiency, reliability, safety, and ease of operation.

Our machines operate in many of the most austere environments on Earth, ranging from subzero degree regions to extreme desert applications. Our efficiency, best-in-class safety equipment and minimal “down-time” make us the clear choice for railcar shunting. We have earned our customers’ business through tailoring our machines to meet your specific application.
