Investment in new rail cars

Shippers have indicated that BC Rail was unable to
provide sufficient rail cars to meet their needs. This
concern will be answered by a contractual commitment by
CN to purchase 600 centre beam cars and to upgrade
1,500 cars to ensure customers have access to rail cars
when and where they need them.

And I have it on very good authority that a contractor refused to dismantle 1500 repairable cars and thus lost the contract. It was let to another company that subsequently destroyed the cars. I am still searchung for that company.

Good work, Gary E,

have a google for "Railcar Purchase Agreement"

which has some very strange stuff in it. I'd be very interested to know what you make of it.

It's an agreement between a newly incorporated affiliate of the purchaser which has not previously carried on any business and ... well, maybe you oughta look at it.
