RECo Reacts: A Speedy Wall Repair Restores Rail Service

Reinforced Earth Product in Field

 

On January 16, 2009, a freight train operated by Burlington Northern / Santa Fe (BNSF) derailed in a depression south of Littleton, Colorado, severely damaging an existing MSE retaining wall. The freight tracks share a corridor with the Regional Transportation District (RTD) light rail system, and the damage to the MSE wall forced a suspension to the RTD service.
