Railway Turnouts

Foothills has extensive experience working with a US Portland based Railway Company and their requirement for railway frogs.
We have the capability to machine their extremely hard manganese railway frogs sent to us from the US using our high performance machining process.
We then ensure each frog is put through a rigorous explosion test which ensures it is strong enough to withstand any kind of huge impact.

Changing tracks is a high risk process and so it is of utmost importance to ensure that the frogs can withstand the pressure placed upon them under duress from a fully loaded train where the rail meets the part.  We take pride in the fact that our parts are suitable and preferred by BNSF and the Port of Portland.
