ABOUT TRAXX

Experts In Class 1 On-Track Safety

Who We Are

We are a forward-thinking training company who emphatically pursues a non-negotiable approach to the training of Class 1 railroad contractors. We are passionate about partnering to create an entire contract workforce that is more trustworthy, safer working, and produces profitable, efficient results on every project.

What We Do

Traxx provides top tier training to Contractors (EIC, RWIC, Railroad Flagmen). We provide On-Track Safety with appropriate field training to keep employees safe and maintain compliance with Class 1 regulations.

Why Do We Do It?

While great strides have been made over the years to ensure the continued safety in the railroad industry, we are not done yet. We are moving into a new era where contractors roles have become more prevalent. Traxx intends to stay ahead of the curve and be proactive in contractor safety and training. Traxx was created with the purpose of providing Class 1 contractors the same type of top tier training and accountability that Class 1 railroad employees are privileged to. Now contractors can be confident that they are as well trained and productive as Class 1 railroad employees.

What our clients say

I had the privilege of receiving training from Jeff, as both a classroom instructor when I attended his NARS MOWR Class and field training through Traxx Railroad Safety. I never sat in a class where the instructor was so engaging, exciting, and passionate about the subject matter. He took our class with several people who had never been in the railroad industry and found a way to teach us the concepts for properly providing on-track safety. His teaching style is dynamic and he leaves nothing on the table in class each day. Our company then decided to use Traxx, which Jeff is a co-owner of, for our field training. He comes to our job-site and teaches the practical application of what we learned in class. I now have a complete understanding, which makes me work more confidently and our company safer. - Arnold D.
Your first asset is that you thoroughly know your subject matter, you have lived it. When you present it, you then do a wonderful job of engaging your students. I specially picked up on the fact that as a student of yours if I didn’t understand something you would work through it with me and not move on until I completely understood. Also, the no question is a bad question atmosphere you project goes a long way towards an at ease atmosphere.- Michael P.
I have had the privilege to learn from Jeff Dudley through field training and classroom. I continue to seek his advice whenever I need an clarification of a rule or an out of the ordinary situation. Jeff truly loves railroading and teaching. He takes the rulebook and breaks it down using examples we've all seen in the field. Every time I'm in his class, I take away a better understanding of the rules. In this industry with rules forever changing and new rules added, I'm fortunate to be able to call on Traxx whenever I need some answers!- Aaron R.

Jeff Dudley

Co-Founder

Jeff Dudley is the co-founder of Traxx Railroad Safety. His zeal for safe railroads coupled with an intensity to create gave rise to Traxx. Through proper training and accountability, he is compelled to bridge the gap between class 1 railroad contractors and the railroads to make sure all stay “On Track for a Brighter, Safer Railroad.”

Jeff started in the railroad industry at 19 years old. He is currently working as a Maintenance of Way Operating Rules Instructor at the National Academy of Railroad Sciences. (NARS) Jeff’s gifting to teach mixed with his knowledge of railroad culture makes every encounter that a contractor has in his classroom come alive with a better understanding of the rules and safety requirements. He prioritizes his family and loves coming home each day to spend time together. That spurs him on to instruct, train, and provide accountability, so that all can go home safely each night.

In his spare time, he enjoys hiking in the mountains and loves to embark on new things that push him to his limits. On all his travels, he enjoys eating where the locals do, no matter how small a hole in the wall it is.
