A HEAVY HAUL EVOLUTION

Bessemer and Lake Erie, which had the first large fleet of 90-ton cars in the 1930s, has always emphasized track structures and track maintenance. While other heavy-haul railways exceed B&LE traffic density today, the road continues to pay close attention to its fixed plant. It has continuous welded rail, glued insulated joints, and regular maintenance programs for ballast, bridges and culverts.
