A satisfied client and another quality project completed. This enormous project is a prime example of A&B Rail Services expertise, capabilities, and commitment to Doing It Right. The expansion of Di-Corp’s rail yard required significant project management expertise to ensure client expectations, project time lines, and material requirements were met. Cold winter conditions and heavy snowfalls combined with an aggressive schedule required critical planning in order to prevent rework. The project had 3 major tie‐in points where tracks were temporarily shutdown such that crews could move new panels into place. 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.
