LACHINE, QC: Global Railway Industries Ltd announced that Metrolinx has awarded a contract to its wholly-owned subsidiary CAD Railway Industries Ltd to refurbish railway passenger cars. Global Railway said CAD’s bid for the large, long-term transit refurbishment contract was the lowest price bid of three bidders.
