Winnipeg, MB — CN Rail has broken ground in Winnipeg on one of two new state-of-the-art facilities in North America to train thousands of new employees, including those involved in equipment maintenance. The centre in Winnipeg will be located at CN’s main Canadian heavy repair shops on the city’s east side and will handle up to 300 employees a week.

The company says workers will get hands-on experience by working on equipment ranging from locomotive simulators and dispatchers stations to rolling stock.

The second training centre is a somewhat smaller complex that will be built near Chicago and handle up to 125 employees a week.
