Canadian National has undertaken a complete rebuilding of the 764-mile Edmonton-Vancouver line in preparation for handling 75 MGT annually by 1990, much of this in unit trains of high-capacity cars. With $450 million already expended and $1.9 billion budgeted for the 1980 decade, the project calls for concrete cross ties, alloy-steel rail, and double track over much of the route. The P-811 Track Laying System is regarded as essential in assuring the productivity and controlling costs.
