Our Railcar Mini-Shop Repair Network

Our mini-shops are your convenient and cost-effective options for smaller-scale repairs.

When you visit one of our dedicated railcar mini-shops, our highly skilled technicians will inspect your railcar to determine the cause of the issue. Next, they’ll troubleshoot the problem to identify the best solution to get your car operating reliably. Our team implements the proper fixes as efficiently as possible. At VLS, we strive to repair your railcars with industry-leading turnarounds and minimal downtime so you can get back to your job site quickly.
