Tour of Amsted Rail
Wednesday, May 29, 2019, 10:30 AM - 12 noon

Amsted Rail builds everything for railcars from wheels, axles and bearings to brake systems, bogies, bolsters and more.

Attendance is limited to just 30 people! Mark your calendar and set the time aside. Also, PLEASE NOTE, the tour is on a weekday, Wednesday, in the morning. Amsted does not work on the weekend; so this will be our first ever tour on a weekday.

Safety Requirements: Tour of a Fabrication Shop under Actual Working Conditions! Safety is paramount!
