Rolling stock

CANARAIL's reputation relative to rolling stock is based on more than 200 projects completed since 1990. These projects were for passenger, freight and mineral railways in Canada and around the world, and covered locomotives, wagons and rail-bound maintenance-of-way equipment.

Some projects involve an evaluation of the performance and reliability of existing rolling stock to determine the appropriate level of maintenance on refurbishment. Other projects require in-depth analysis of loading and unloading methodologies for the transportation of particular products such as minerals. CANARAIL has developed recognized expertise in the rehabilitation and operation of rolling stock.

CANARAIL provides the preparation of technical specifications, tendering, evaluation of proposals, contract negotiations and assignment, manufacturing supervision, supervision of factory and site tests and operating strategies.

CANARAIL provides services for the procurement cycle and all technical, engineering and business / financial and project execution.
