We started in the rail industry over 20 years ago by building Logistics Park Chicago as our first project for the largest inland logistics port in North America, the BNSF Railway. With success working with Class 1 Railroads, Short Lines, and both Large and Small Manufacturers, we are your trusted rail contractors.

Harbour proudly self performs all rail services to the highest quality standards. Services include comprehensive railroad track design, construction, engineering, management, and emergency repair services to industrial track projects nationwide. Our ability to self-perform work means that we have a more thorough understanding of the construction trades than companies that cannot self-perform.

We have increased control and management power of the project schedule through our in-house capability, a complete understanding of the project building components, and real-time construction cost data. These are all benefits that only Harbour’s team of professional rail contractors can provide.

With a diverse staff of industry experts on the team and with our extensive equipment capabilities, we promise to be with you every step of the way throughout your railroad project, from concept to completion and beyond.
