“Burns did a great job helping us successfully plan, design and integrate 160-miles of positive train control across our Springfield and Hudson lines. They were in the trenches with us – every step of the way – to ensure everything was completed correctly the first time around. This would not have happened without their knowledge, thoroughness and dedication. They made Amtrak their first priority, and acted as a trusted partner to help us successfully complete this critical project.”
