 Certified Hi-Rail Inspections in Charleston WV

Hi-rail Repair and Maintenance at VMS



Hi-Rail, High-Rail or HyRail?

There are many variations of the name. Hi-rail is the general spelling used to refer to rail-road vehicles that can operate on both rails and roads, and HyRail is a trademark name for Harsco Rail products. 

VMS technicians are certified for both HyRail and hi-rail inspections and maintenance.

The rail rider shown in the two photos above are of the same hi-rail vehicle. It's a beautifully restored 1956 Pontiac Chieftain Station Wagon that was converted to a hi-rail vehicle by the Fairmont Motor Car company, according to Nevada Northern Railway's website, and is apparently available for booking to anyone wanting to take it out on a 10 mile rail trip. How cool is that?!! 

To find out more, just click their link in this post. You'll find an interesting history of the vehicle as well. 

The old VW bus hi-rail vehicle on the left is certainly on our bucket list. Apparently there were many of these in use as railroad vehicles. A Google images search for "VW hi rail" shows quite a collection of them. 

Lastly, another Pontiac, a 1958 Pontiac station wagon rail rider is seen here, courtesy of Bytown Railway Society, and can be seen at the following link: http://www.trainweb.org/oldtimetrains/photos/hirail/hyrail.htm.
