Railroad Capabilities

First Environmental offers vacuum truck services with high-rail capabilities enabling First Environmental to perform projects where other companies may be limited.

The high rail system allows First Environmental to deploy directly on tracks, with proper track protection, making it simple to remove materials along tracks or in the track gauge and potentially impacted ballast if required.

First Environmental high rail vacuum trucks have air mover pumps that remove both solid and liquid material. The material is stored in a 15 cubic yard tank and can handle bulk material such as coal, grain, and stone. We have extensive experience removing both impacted and contaminated soil as well as railroad ballast. All of First Environmental’s personnel and equipment meet FRA standards and guidelines.
