He notes they do take action to prevent train caused fires.
“I don't think that it is a common issue but we have taken steps with locomotives maintenance inspections along with spark arresters, exhaust pipes, composite brake shoes, that sort of thing limit any type of sparks.., we are also operating a newer fleet than in the past.”
Hrysak said representatives from CP talked to Mayor Rudd to discuss his concerns and see if they can follow up with any measures to deal with them.
