After leaving the glorious field of IT I fell into Hirail work.
What is Hirail?I hear you ask
Hirail is adding train wheels to regular trucks and other civil construction vehicles so that they can run on train lines.
I got my start on the Northwest Metro line starting at Bella Vista station driving a flatbed crane truck. We were there to install the walkways all along the tunnel. We had to use the crane to unload the pieces, weighing up to 200kg each, onto the brackets that we’d installed on the wall of the tunnel.
