USA: Short line operator and railway construction, maintenance and repair contractor RJ Corman Railroad Group has entered the signalling design and supply market with the creation of RJ Corman Signaling.

'Work on the Nicholasville, Kentucky, facility is nearing completion', said Mike Wilson, Vice-President of the new subsidiary. 'We have identified a Jacksonville/Orange Park, Florida, location for a second facility to help us accelerate our early stage growth in engineering and construction. Our short term plans include hiring over 100 new employees to support engineering and the signal shop, although construction and maintenance demands will drive that much higher.'
