CUB Railcar MoverHeyl & Patterson is the maker of the CUB™, a unique railcar and locomotive moving device.  Utilizing a steel runway that is bolted to the ties adjacent the track rail, the CUB is an electromechanical machine that is capable of moving up to 13 railcars at a time.  It's safe, easy to install, environmentally friendly and far less costly than large systems, making it the ideal solution for small to mid-sized railcar loading, unloading and repositioning applications.

Heyl & Patterson will showcase the CUB™ Railcar Mover at Railway Interchange 2011, alongside vendor rep JMA Railroad Supply Co. of Chicago.
