They are only refurbishing four (4) dining cars? Wiki suggests their roster includes 13 dining cars, what do they plan to do with the remaining nine (9) dining cars?

Rail GD is really REALLY small, and very young (5 years.) Like, take a look at their facility out on the Gaspé Peninsula: https://goo.gl/maps/nyycjgeLVnE2" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

That said - they seem to do really good work according to their website, http://www.railgd.com" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;.
