Canadian Pacific Builds New Track Panel

By Staff | Sep 20, 2016

BUILDING THE TRACK – The four man crew from the Canadian Pacific Railroad work on building a section of track. According to Aaron True, Canadian Pacific worker, they will be taking out the switch that is near Lawler and replacing that track with the new track panel they are building. The track panel is used for staging railcars and if there is an accident, putting damaged railcars to the side. The track panel is built in much the same way they did when railways were first built except equipment is used to lay the ties and the steel track. The rest is done by hand.
