NOTE: Northwest Rail Electric does not rebuild passenger cars on its own. However, we have relationships with a number of passenger car shops, and we also have familiarity with the industry. Therefore, we have at times become involved in the rebuilding of passenger cars in a consulting position.

While it is not common for us to do so, there have been times when Northwest Rail Electric has been asked to evaluate passenger cars for particular services or conversions.

DWLX 800717 is a rebuilt baggage car, with significant involvement of Northwest Rail Electric. It has a new floor and Amtrak compatible electrical system. It is only one of a number of examples of Northwest Rail Electric getting involved in passenger car rebuilding.

Because we have worked with so many different passenger car rebuilders and repair shops, we have a general idea of what cars are available, what condition they are in, and what types of passenger cars would be suitable for a particular type of service.

Exact projects have varied considerably, and have included everything from finding small parts for historic passenger car preservation to finding a qualified inspector for inspection of wreck damaged commuter coaches.

Due to the wide variety of projects, and their nature as only a very small part of our entire company, it is best to contact us directly and describe your project to us so that we may consider what we are able to do for you.
