Railcar Derail Systems

SaberTooth™ Portable Derails

Railcar Derailing Protection When and Where You Need It.

One-way and two-way derailing for industrial siding and approaches to buildings. The portable derails stand 2.75 inches above top of rail to meet current railroad locomotive clearance requirements. SaberTooth derails have been tested at the Transportation Tech Center, Pueblo, Colorado. One-way derail derailed a 6-axle locomotive at 6.2 mph. Our two-way derail derailed a 100 ton loaded hopper car at 5.1mph.

Improved Design

Tie-Biting Hook prevents derail from sliding in the event a tie brace notch slips off tie plate. Hook remains trapped between two ties during derailing. Tool-Free Installation Four stainless steel thumbscrews eliminate the need for wrenches. No damage to rail surfaces.

  • DERAILER WITH SIGN

    Keeps operator safer. Very simple to use.

    I originally planned on using a different vendor, but they didn't have the stock. I needed the derail ASAP and went ahead with Saferack. I should have used Saferack from the get go anyhow. Keeps the transload FRA compliant. Keeps transloader operator safer. Very simple to install, use and operate.

    Quality items, one stop shopping and competetive pricing.

    SafeRack Sales and Customer Service has been extremely positive and was able to deliver each item we ordered very quickly. I found that unlike some other product supply companies, SafeRack responded very quickly and efficiently. We are also working with the engineering group on a transloader. The engineering department has been extrememly helpful and has been able to provide answers and solutions to all of our questions and concerns. I found that SafeRack is great to work with and we will be placing more orders with SafeRack.

  • The price was very competitve and the device matched up very well to our needs.

    Dana Hamor identified that the our rail was just a few fractions of an inch off and suggested that we pruchase shims so taht the product would fit properly when it arrived at our site instead of going through trial and error to get it right. Overall my experience was very satisfactory. Ordering was easy and the sales department offered just the right amount of assistance to make sure that our purchase and installation yielded the results we were after with out being overly intrusive.
