Need Expertise on Insurance for Railroad Companies? We Have Tunnel Focus.

Led by Bob McCarthy and Tripp Salisbury, McRail is a railroad insurance partner with tunnel focus. In other words, railroad insurance is all we do, and we do it very well. If you have a railroad-based business, our goal is to be your one-stop rail insurance expert – consulting on every exposure, from railroad liability to track and roadbed insurance.

With more than 40 years of experience, our staff has an unparalleled longevity, connections and knowledge of the intricacies of the rail industry. Although McRail is small, we’re like the “little engine that could” thanks to our parent company, Borden, Perlman, Salisbury and Kelly, one of the largest and most trusted independent insurance agencies serving the 48 continental states. With McRail, you get the best of all worlds – hometown service combined with national experience.

Count on us for:

  • Rail Industry Expertise: Ask around and you’ll find that we are a trusted partner with a sound reputation. We go beyond insurance, taking every opportunity to help you improve your business.
  • Relationship & Responsiveness: McRail’s non-stop personalized service keeps you on track – particularly in times of crisis.
  • Creativity & Clout: With relationships with more than 30 “A” rated carriers, we negotiate insurance coverage, premium and claims on your behalf. We put your account on a pedestal and market your best features to underwriters to help you command the lowest insurance premiums available.
