TRS will get the job done as soon as possible but not sooner than possible.   We strive to get the job done correctly, taking the time to ensure your satisfaction.  A usual job will take 3-18 months (dependent on job complexity and shop schedule). TRS IS NOT a factory assembly line business.  Our priority is quality work, not deadlines that might result in the return of a job. While our priority is a proper job over a time frame we can offer an “EXPRESS” service.   The hourly rate is $75.00-100.00 an hour for “Express” service.  Please note that some jobs have a built in time requirement (e.g. breakdown and rebuild of a large locomotive would be about 25 hours) that cannot be shortened. 

We guarantee and warranty all work done by us (if the work done has any other party intervene than TRS it is voided of any warranty).
