Product Description

Western-Cullen-Hayes Bumping Posts are designed to stop unauthorized movement of a railroad car beyond the rail end and to protect property, personnel, lading and equipment from damage. They also improve operating efficiencies by providing a positive stop against which train crews can switch while operating under standard procedure. The bumping posts, when properly installed at track ends, engage the coupler and draft gear of a moving car and transfer the force of impact to ties, rail and ballast, bringing the car to a safe, sure stop. They are designed to accommodate normal switching speed. Bumping posts are especially valuable in areas needing extra protection such as chemical storage areas, work yards, assembly lines, plant loading and unloading areas, etc.
