A private railcar brokerage / repair / restoration company, they also store railcars.
Some cars are owned by the principals, some leased, some on consignment.

Cars listed may have been sold or the owners may have relocated them. This list is not comprehensive, as other domes may have passed thru their facility.

Additionally, the information on this page is also incomplete as Les Kasten was involved in a relocation of the business and never had the time to fully update our data.

Requests to the new managing partner Ben Butterworth have also not been very productive
