Past Rail Projects


Adirondack Track Removal

National removed 34 miles of abandoned track for the New York State Department of Transportation in 2020 and 2021. This project took place in the beautiful Adirondack Regions of upstate New York. The goal of this project was to create a multipurpose trail for pedestrians, cyclists, and snow mobile riders. National spent over a year removing the track while maintaining good relations with the towns of Tupper Lake, Saranac Lake, and Lake Placid. This project included track removal, crossing restoration, and preparatory work for the trail itself. We successfully reclaimed 100% of the steel track components and recycled over 25% of the wooden ties. We were able to utilize a WBE (Women’s Business Enterprise), an SDVOB (Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Business), and some local work force to complete this project. The trail is scheduled to be completed in 2023.

Buckeye Yard Demolition

National Salvage was contracted for the removal of the Norfolk Southern owned Buckeye Yard in 2020. This hump yard was located on the westside of Columbus, OH, spanned over 400 acres, and contained over 70 miles of track. The project was completed in two phases. Phase 1 started in January of 2021 and was completed in September of the same year. Phase two started in November of 2021, and the entire project was completed by February of 2022. National was very diligent with the removal of the track components, and we were able to recycle 100% of the material removed from this site. The rail was recycled at steel mills in Chicago and Pennsylvania, and the ties were utilized as co-generation fuel in Alabama.
