FIRST ON RAIL, STILL ON TRACK.  Designers and Developers of the Octopus and Platypus

In early 2012 Howell Rail was purchased from the Howell Family after 40 years of operation by Howell Contractors.

Our aim is to continue to build upon our reputation for design and development of innovative rail equipment and specialized tools and attachments.

We have an extensive fleet of Hi-rail excavators and specialized rail equipment to assist with any job and our highly skilled operators have the experience and knowledge to efficiently work on all rail maintenance and construction projects.

At Howell Rail we use our considerable experience in the rail industry to focus on individual client requirements. We are constantly adapting and redesigning our equipment to ensure we achieve the best possible outcome for our clients
