FastPatch was used to conduct a repair on a scale chair in the CSX Queensgate Yard in Cincinnati, Ohio, one of the largest rail classification facilities in North America. Queensgate Yard, considered one of the most productive hump yards on the CSX system, is located along the Mill Creek west of downtown Cincinnati and covers approximately 70 miles of track. Constructed at a cost of over 71 million dollars with the purpose of consolidating several small yards in the area, the yard was dedicated on October 20, 1981. In 2012, our POLYQuik Division conducted a repair on a scale chair using a total of 5 lifts and 14 bags of gravel. The FastPatch procedure took 90 minutes to complete.
