Chicago, Ft Wayne and Eastern (Railamerica) – Locomotive Repair Building

Strebig Construction, Inc. and our design team designed and built this 12,000 square foot NUCOR pre-engineered steel building for the inspections and repairs to locomotives and rail cars.  This facility was one of the first of their type for Chicago, Fort Wayne and Eastern Railroad.  Before the building they worked yearlong outside.  The building is 35’ tall to allow locomotive entry and exit and has two sets of tracks running through it with 20 foot tall roll up doors to each end at each track system.  There is a 66 foot long in-ground inspection pit for servicing the carriage of large locomotives.  Also inside to assist with their repairs and inspections is an overhead crane system.  In one corner is an office and break room.
