Got Old Frogs and Diamonds?

Got Old Frogs and Diamonds?

February 26, 2024

When it comes to specialty track components such as frogs and diamond inserts, railroads report that traditional repairs only last a few weeks to months before needing additional maintenance. With these components being such a vital part of railways across the globe, Holland has developed a repair method that not only extends the life significantly longer, but also 2-3 times faster than traditional methods. 

Holland’s Automated Manganese Refurbishment (HAMR®) service includes pre-weld material removal using plasma cutting, robotically controlled welding procedures to build back the damaged area, and finish grinding to bring components back to OEM specifications. Refurbishments can be completed on-track, off-track in a pond scenario, or sent in to our fixed plant location in Crete, IL.

Do you have old frogs or diamonds that are not currently being utilized? 

You know… that one that’s sitting in the same spot it’s been for months rusting away. 

Our Crete, IL fixed HAMR plant location is the perfect solution to bring these back to life at a much lower cost than purchasing a new component, while also saving you a mobilization fee when sent directly to us. This process can also be capitalized! The current wait time for purchasing a new component is extensive, while our HAMR team can repair your frogs and diamonds in a fraction of that time frame. 

So what are you waiting for? Send us a message to and tell us about your old frogs and diamonds.
