The Result

A satisfied client and another quality project completed. This 2.5 km time sensitive project is a prime example of A&B Rail Services expertise, capabilities and commitment to Doing It Right. There were a number of significant challenges which came up during this project that A&B Rail Services was able to overcome. Some of these included managing crews and construction in high traffic areas, and coordinating materials and logistics associated with high traffic areas. For the City of Calgary’s North West LRT system, this extension provides train service for people living and working in Rocky ridge, Royal Oak and Tuscany neighbourhoods. For A&B Rail Services, it means another satisfied customer in our 50-year journey to become Canada’s largest, most-experienced, and most sought-after rail services company.
