Irwin Car offers a wide range of custom-designed locomotives and personnel carriers, as well as transfer and utility vehicles that are ideal for mining, tunneling and above-ground industrial use. Our locomotives are powered by diesel, battery, trolley and a combination of battery/trolley, while our transfer cars can be AC, DC, battery, diesel, propane or air powered to suit your needs.

Irwin has been the preeminent name in underground rail haulage for more than 120 years, and while coal no longer comes out of the ground in cars, the machinery that drives the worlds mining industries is transported underground on Irwin specialty mining cars.

Irwin’s standard and custom transfer cars, historic and scenic railcar products, truck & bogie assemblies, maintenance of way rail gear, couplers, and more are engineered and manufactured to the most exacting standards, enabling you to address your most critical needs, upgrade your own equipment, and reduce your maintenance costs.

Besides manufacturing locomotives and related products for mining and industrial applications, we also provide complete rebuild or redesign of existing rail equipment, with refurbishment to “like new” condition.
