New track at Excel Railcar Services, Inc.


At Excel Railcar Services, Inc., it is our goal to provide quality workmanship and customer satisfaction for all of
our business partners in the railroad industry.   With this in mind, Excel Railcar Services, Inc., has written and
implemented a Quality Assurance Program that our entire organization is challenged to maintain.

It is our intent that this program provide continuous improvement opportunities in order to add value to our
company and to our customers.  The purpose of our program is to insure a uniform standard of high quality
products in the general railroad industry.  

This program is based on the Association of American Railroads Manual of Standards and Recommended
Practices, Section J, Specifications for Quality Assurance, M-1003.

To improve our service to our customers, we made a major investment in our rail yard and the rehabilitation of
our tracks.  The investment covered new tracks over a span of three years.  Stages 1 and 2 were completed in
June of 1999.  Stage 3 of our project was started in May of 2000 and completed October 2000.  With the project
completed, our facility can store up to 225 cars.
