Solving a Problem That Runs 140,000 Miles Long

Performance

Evertrak 7000 is the first composite tie for North American heavy haul and transit railroads made with glass fiber reinforced 100% recycled polyolefin plastic. Made to perform for decades of rail traffic in any environmental condition, Evertrak 7000 changes the paradigm for capital renewal of track by eliminating tie cycles. Evertrak 7000 is available now in lengths from 8’6” to 10′.
