New app provides rail car information

Aug. 12, 2015 – Canada’s railways are behind a new invitation-only app that gives first responders real-time information about the contents of rail cars involved in an emergency. The AskRail app was developed by the Association of American Railroads and its members, including CN and CP, and allows users to quickly search the rail car’s ID to determine its contents and view company contact information. The app is available in Canada in English, and a French-language version is expected later this year. Learn more and request the app at
