HIGHLAND PARK, Ill. – Today, Union Pacific starts a tie replacement project along 10 miles of its North Line, totaling roughly 3,000 ties between Highland Park and Wilmette.
Union Pacific is about to embark on a major tie project over 45 miles of its Metra UP-North Line. The portion of the line receiving the new ties runs from Kenosha and Chicago, and the work will begin on Tuesday, Sept. 20.
Union Pacific Railroad has announced that it will embark on a major tie project on the UP-West Line beginning Wednesday, June 8.
RR Mergers & Acquisitions, advisor to rail service, supplier companies, and short line railroads announced the sale of its client, Platinum Track Services, to GCF Railway Works.
BNSF will be working on the railroad this weekend.
Came across the video below on LinkedIn last week. It doesn’t appear to be a project in North America, but the process of laying down sections of concrete tie is pretty cool.
