WHY WE ARE DIFFERENT

— 1. ECRG is run by professional railroaders who earn their daily living by producing in a railroad environment in accordance with Certified Federal Regulations (CFR), Federal Railroad Administration rules and railroad rules.
— 2. We are pro-active in adapting and adjusting "industry best" practices to our operations.
— 3. We actively consult with Railroad managements, transportation professionals and FRA regulators to review our operations to minimize risk.
— 4. We are not bound by tradition, past practices or "what worked in the past" or past precedents or past legal defenses in evaluating operations. We are free to implement what works and what is safest and best in the present.
— 5. We seek to partner with the rail industry to serve them above and beyond excursions.
— 6. 15 years (2000-2015) of running excursion operations thought the crowded and busy street crossings of the North Jersey Metropolitan area as well as New York State using various forms of shunting with no accidents or close calls.
