Compilation and Analysis of Historical Market Values and Lease Rental Rates 1992-2020
The RailSolutions (RS) Railroad Equipment Historical Database has been compiled and published for the purpose of providing our clients with what we believe is the most comprehensive single source of railcar and locomotive market values and lease rental rates available in the railroad industry. As of January 1, 2021, the RS base data file contained valuation information on more than 1,000,000 railcars and locomotives. One of the primary objectives in creating the RS Railroad Equipment Historical Database is to extract specific data from our master reference file and present it in a format that is easy to read and interpret. The principals of RS have recorded a huge volume of new and used equipment sale prices, and rental rates on leased railcars and locomotives over a period of approximately 30 years.
The Railroad Equipment Historical Database will be offered to subscribers in an Excel and a PDF format. The link below contains a representative section of The Database (Section 1 – General Service Boxcars).

The initial subscription cost is $4,000 with an annual renewal fee of $1,200.
