  • 2 main line crossovers
  • Double diamond install
  • 2500 track feet of track re-alignment

The Result

A satisfied client and another quality project completed. The successful completion of a project of this size 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 including working on a live site while following a strict timeline required by the client. CN Rail’s Wainwright subdivision in part of the East-West corridor, sees a train every 30 minutes. As the safety of our team, our client, and the public has always been A&B Rail Services’ number one priority, procedures and systems were put in place to ensure all goals and safety standards were met. 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.
