Hiring for new lines or simply keeping existing services running can be an immense challenge, given a lack of experienced personnel available.

Our recruiting team can help quickly find trained professionals that will fill gaps in hiring, mobilize new lines, or support maintenance to keep your trains running.


Thousands of commuters rely on operational experts for safe, reliable transit. Operations employees are the people that move trains and transport riders safely. Hallcon has a team of specialized industry professionals and certified employees who carry out these tasks daily.


We provide flaggers and construction support staff with deep knowledge of the rules and regulations that protect construction and maintenance workers across your transportation network.


The integrity of rail equipment is critical to meet the schedules of your customer. Our skilled specialists provide preventative maintenance, repair, and upgrades to prevent passenger delays due to equipment failure.

Transit Support

A successful operation requires management and logistical support to ensure an efficient commute. We provide staffing solutions for positions ranging from senior operations managers to station attendants to meet your immediate needs.


Freight railroad operators cannot always predict when they may need to meet new customer freight demands or address maintenance challenges.

It’s not always easy to find the operations and maintenance team members you need to keep your trains moving.


Our team of locomotive engineers, conductors, and plant-switching professionals have the skills, qualifications, and certifications needed to meet your operational needs and regulatory requirements. We guarantee it.

With a never-ending list of federal regulations, it can be difficult to achieve and maintain compliance. Failure to comply can be costly for your organization. We provide comprehensive service for all aspects of engineer and conductor certification. Acting as a liaison between the Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) and our clients, Hallcon ensures that your personnel are always up to date.
