LB Foster Rail Products

New Rail

L.B. Foster Company is the market leader in the distribution of new rail throughout North America, supplying rail for heavy haul, industrial, low density and passenger/transit applications. Sourced from several major US mills, L.B. Foster can supply rail sections from 12-lb. to 175-lb., generally in lengths of 39 ft., 40 ft., 78 ft. or 80 ft., depending on the rail section weight. In addition to stick rail, if the job requires continuous welded rail (CWR), we can provide not only the welded rail, delivered to the jobsite on our own trains, but unloading services as well. The list below highlights the various rail sections offered by L.B. Foster.
