Construction of the new TRANSCAER Safety Train is progressing!

The TRANSCAER team is pleased to share that significant progress has been made by the construction team on the development of the new TRANSCAER Safety Train 

Construction began in July 2023 and the team has since started applying the valves and fittings on the tank car. The team is currently working on completing the top platform, applying heater coils, and hanging the doors. 

The Safety Train is anticipated to be complete by Spring 2024. Upon completion, the new training tank car will embark on a cross-country tour, making stops in communities where dangerous goods travel, raising awareness about rail safety and emergency response for transportation incidents involving dangerous goods.  

This project has been made possible with funding received under Transport Canada’s Rail Safety Improvement Program and the generous donations of CIAC members and partners, and industry stakeholders.
