In Engineering, we pride ourselves on being as strong as the metal we run our trains on. No matter what conditions we face, we don't bend, melt or dent. Start your railroader career and learn where it can take you.
Track Maintainers repair railway tracks, replacing and repairing various track components including rails, railway ties, fences, and the alignment of track.
Seasonal Labourers work outdoors on teams performing moderate to heavy physical labour to build and maintain the track and its surrounding materials. If you are interested in expanding your railroader career, you have an excellent opportunity to become a machine operator from this position.
When work is seasonal, you can expect to be laid off at the end of the work season. You will be called back as needed (and in seniority order) for the next work season. You may be away from home, and you will stay in either motels or boarding cars with meals provided.
Work Equipment Maintainers work as members of a team performing preventative and corrective maintenance to a fleet of heavy equipment.
There are two facets to Signals & Communications (S&C) -- construction and maintenance. We offer an eight-month training program to become a Signal Maintainer/Wireman. Upon graduation, you will be moved to our construction team where you will be responsible for protecting existing signal equipment during construction or adding new equipment to the property.
S&C Helpers work as part of a team, performing heavy labour related to railway signalling systems, construction and maintenance.
Trainees protect existing S&C equipment -- signals, switch machines and detectors -- during track renewal construction. Trainees also add new assets to the property. With the accumulation of seniority, you can then apply for a position as an S&C Maintainer.
Maintainers are involved with the maintenance and repair of all equipment (signals, switch machines, detectors) pertaining to train control systems. They are also responsible for the maintenance and repair of Crossing Warning Systems and other equipment including fibre optics and wireless communications.
