Based on its Canron P-811 Track renewal train, Canadian National is pushing the installation of concrete ties, a projected 1.5 million in 5 years, on its heavy-traffic lines handling at least 25 MGT per mile per year in 100-ton cars and having curvature exceeding 2 degrees. Tests extending back six years have proved the superiority of concrete ties on such track.
