Rocky Mountaineer dedicates new rail car to former CN chairman
The announcement marks the eighth rail car dedicated by Rocky Mountaineer since 1990 to acknowledge notable people and their contributions to the rail industry.
Having served from 1994 to 2014, McLean was CN's longest-serving chairman, according to a Rocky Mountaineer press release.
Rocky Mountain added four bi-level rail cars to its fleet in April, and will add three more in 2020. The new cars represent the largest capital investment in Rocky Mountaineer’s history, according to a separate announcement.
Stadler Rail engineered and built the new cars.
