Tactical Cleaning has been cleaning railcars since 2004. In mid-2017, Tactical was purchased by a management and investor group led by Rail Partners Management Group, Seneca Partners, and Uniprop bringing and expanding depth of management expertise and access capital. This ensures that Tactical is always positioned to meet our customers needs. We have expanded from one shop in Commerce City, CO to 5 full time cleaning operations including Danville, IL; El Dorado, KS; Baltimore, MD; and Jersey Shore, PA.
Amongst these shops, we can clean, repair, sandblast and flare off rail cars containing numerous commodities. Each facility has distinct capabilities beyond the cleaning process. We also have a network working with these shops and multiple short lines that can arrange for storage, mobile repair and mobile cleaning. We have locations on the UPRR, BNSF, CSXT and NS railroads. This allows us to handle cleaning needs on most major rail lines to avoid additional switch fees between the class I railroads. Tactical Cleaning takes a “Safety First” stand on all work performed at our shops and is committed to working safely and efficiently. We clean all cars to the level of being prepared for HM-216 requalification work, so the cars are free and clear of any residual product and are ready for tank entry and interior inspections.
