    The EDI Rail / Bombardier Transportation Facility Tour will provide an insight into the maintenance and operations of rail vehicles in Western Australia.

    The tour will showcase current maintenance projects and the engineering expertise that goes into maintaining rail vehicles at EDI Rail and Bombardier Transportation's facility.

    EDI Rail and Bombardier engineers will give a technical talk during the facility tour, and will open up the discussion about current projects, developments and opportunities in the rail industry.

    This tour is a great opportunity for guests to network with members from the rail companies, as well as with other managers and engineers attending the tour.

    The visit will be of particular interest for engineers considering a transition to the rail industry as part of the SAE-A’s Industry Programs Working Group (IPWG) initiative with the Victorian Government Department of Education & Training.

    Bombardier Transportation were Gold Award winners for the Rail category and Young Engineer category at the 2015 SAE-A Mobility Engineering Excellence Awards.
