Creighton Manning provides a breadth of engineering services to support both freight and passenger rail. We understand the needs and demands of our clients:

Safety – The safe movement of people and goods is of paramount importance and the foundation upon which all of our projects are designed and completed.

Service  Railroads thrive by operating as efficiently as possible to serve their customers 24 hours a day, seven days a week. We develop designs and construction methods that will have minimal impact to railroad operations.

Responsiveness – Railroad maintenance and capital projects occur based on schedules that change as the railroad’s needs change. Unfortunately, this can include emergency situations. Our employees’ breadth of talent can accommodate this variability and respond on short notice.

Coordination – Railroad maintenance and capital projects can affect multiple parties including contractors, engineers, utilities, local communities and government agencies. We keep all parties informed at every stage to move a project through to completion with the least impact.
