Congratulations to Railway Challenge 2017 winners - SNC Lavalin!


SNC-Lavalin Rail & Transit Railway Challenge Winners 2017

“We are delighted that we’ve been able to retain the crown as overall winners. Our hard work has paid off and we are particularly pleased with our performance in the Reliability, Noise, Ride Comfort and Design Challenges.

"Taking part in the Railway Challenge has allowed us to put our imagination and resourcefulness to the test and given us the hands-on experience of what’s needed to make a locomotive from start to finish.”
David Westcough, Team Leader, SNC Lavalin
