Canadian Pacific gives notice of closure of Calgary Locomotive Reliability Centre after order by Canadian Transportation Agency impacts 24-7 operations

Closure will eliminate 130 Calgary positions

CALGARY, Sept. 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ - Canadian Pacific (TSX: CP) (NYSE: CP) has given notice that it will close its Locomotive Reliability Centre (LRC) at Alyth Yard in Calgary in the next number of months. This will result in the elimination of approximately 130 local positions.

CP's decision is the result of a Canadian Transportation Agency (CTA) September 13, 2013 order directing the railway to immediately cease and desist "load testing" and idling operations in proximity to the LRC between 11:00 p.m. and 7:00 a.m. This order poses productivity challenges for service and maintenance work of locomotives during this ordered time.

The CTA order fails to recognize the 24-7 operational requirements and restricts the railway's ability to provide service for customers in Calgary, throughout North America, and those relying on coastal ports for off-shore shipments.

In the coming months locomotive repair and maintenance work, previously conducted in Calgary's 60-year-old Alyth LRC, will be transitioned to other maintenance facilities on the CP network.

Alyth Yard will continue to serve as an important rail yard operation for CP, as it has for more than a century.  The CTA decision does not impact other 24-7 railway activities taking place in the yard.
