General Information About LED Rail Yard Lights & Intermodal Lighting

What Are LED Railroad Yard Lights?

LED Rail Yard Lights are high pole lights or LED High Mast Lights. Where one pole supports many lights in a 360-degree radial pattern, supplying good lighting over a large area.

What Are the Typical Rail Yard Lighting Requirements?

That depends on the region and space of the yard itself. Local governments may have different requirements. The goal is to have a uniform light level across the area. We would be happy to create a lighting plan based on your requirements to determine the ideal option for your space.

What Is the Best Lighting to Use in a Railway Tunnel?

We would recommend a vapor tight or a canopy-style fixture.

What Is the Best LED Railroad Yard Lights to use at an Intermodal Rail Location?

For rail yards, we would suggest High Mast Lighting or powerful pole-mounted LED Flood Lights.

We Work All Night in the Yard and Need Good Light Levels. How Much Light Do You Recommend for the Safety of the Workers?

First, let’s determine what light levels will make the area safe. Then, we can create a lighting plan to ensure those levels are met in that specific area. You will need 3 to 10-foot candles on average, depending on the work performed.

We Have a Large Area to Cover Mounting Fixtures on the Top of the Building. What Are the Highest Wattage Fixtures That You Have to Light Up a Wide Space?

We have very powerful High Bay LED options. For example, we offer 600 Watt UFO high bays producing 96000 lumens each.

It will make sure the area will be bright enough and the lighting’s balanced and even across the space.

Can Your Fixtures Withstand the Dampness of a Rail Tunnel?

Yes, they can. We have many wet location fixtures that work well inside a tunnel.

How Does Your Light Compare to a Holophane Rail Yard Fixture?

They compare very well, and we feel confident that you will like the performance, pricing, warranty, and features of our products.

What Is the Best Lighting to Use in a Rail Station?

Canopy lights work well for covered platforms. Pole-mounted top lights or lower-power shoebox lights are good for outdoor lighting. Indoors, panel lights, and low bay or High Bay Lights are great options.

You can, but it’s not required. We find that most customers use timers or switches to control their fixtures.
