“Cooper Rail Service has been a great resource for us over the past 15 years. In that time they have replaced five aging timber trestle bridges with pre-cast concrete bridges that have been trouble free. They have also made just-in-time repairs for us, and have made time for us when we needed them. Cooper’s equipment is top of the line so we have never experienced work delays due to equipment breakdowns. The employees know what they are doing and adhere to Contractor Safety Guidelines. I would recommend Cooper Rail Service to any railroad looking for an experienced, cost effective solution to bridge and culvert issues.”
