BC Rail



The Company constructed part of North America’s first all electric, commercial train system for BC Rail and their new spur line that took their coal trains to the newly created town of Tumbler Ridge, BC. In addition to the new rail line the Company installed the overhead electrical towers, the switch gear, the sub stations and maintenance facilities on the south and north ends of the line. We installed the MK brand electric engines on the project. The Company constructed the spur lines, load out facilities and coal silo’s for both Bullmoose Coal and Quintette Coal. Morrison Knudsen also performed the Port of Prince Rupert’s upgraded load out and storage facilities to accommodate the Tumbler Ridge coal for export.
