Track Inspector, Utah Central Railway (UCRY) & Salt Lake Garfield & Western Railway (SLGW)
Kevin Tingey joined Patriot Rail in February of 2015 after one year in the railroad industry and has quickly risen as a leader in the company as a conductor, engineer, and transloader, and as part of the Maintenance of Way team. Working at Utah Central Railway (UCRY) and now at Salt Lake Garfield & Western Railway (SLGW), Kevin rises to any role needed while always upholding safety. Nominated for the Fall Employee Spotlight Award by several of his teammates, Kevin goes above and beyond – from coming in on his off days to assisting with transloading, and always stepping up to the plate to support the team. When he’s not dedicating his time to Patriot, Kevin enjoys fishing, hunting and spending time with his family.
“When it comes to safety, learn the rules because they’re there for a reason – to keep you safe. Following the rules is what will allow you to go home safely to your family every night.”
The Patriot Employee Spotlight Award is presented to team members who are nominated by their peers for consistently upholding Patriot’s values and for putting safety above all else.
