Combinining Points

I have 100K+ points scattered around North America using decimal degrees with none sharing the same coordinates but some are clustered within a couple miles. (Rail cars on rail tracks and at stations). I want to combine points with a certain distance and combine their attributes to do some analysis. I have tried the buffer and dissolve method but ArcMap just crashes, I am assuming from just too many points. Any suggestions? I would have hoped there would be an easy method, but most require a location to be the same for the points to be joined.

Thank you
