Quebec Central Railway
- Removed rotten ties on deteriorated line
- Installed 6,000 new ties
- Surfaced track
This small branch line is owned and operated by the Quebec government. PNR RailWorks Quebec Inc. rehabilitated the line to meet Transport Canada and industrial standards necessary to service the industrial businesses on the line.
This track rehabilitation project presented a challenge because the track had not been maintained for many years. PNR RailWorks Quebec Inc. removed the deteriorated ties. The production gang followed and installed 6,000 new ties and ballast and resurfaced the track.
This project was more challenging than most rehabilitation projects due to the deteriorated condition of the ties and ballast. By sequencing the backhoe and production work, PNR RailWorks implemented a productive rehabilitation program. This efficient process facilitated project completion in record time.
