Tehachapi Depot RailRoad

Tehachapi California, a small town with a big history, recently asked RST Cranes to help “crown” the newly refurbished Train Depot. The original depot was built in 1876 (it was a telegraph station originally). Although the depot, was destroyed by fire on two separate occasions, it has remained a treasured site for locals and visitors alike!

The task of the day for RST was to lift the Railroad Signal Board next to the railroad tracks. Our employees, Matt Horn and Victor Villalvazo safely lifted the signal board and it was set in place. After a job well done, Matt and Victor were able to meet and shake hands with the Depot staff as well as the head engineers.

RST Cranes is always ready and willing to help our historical community in any way that we are needed!

It amazes me how much our operators know about their vehicles. To an outsider looking in, it almost seems...
