Industry Achievement
Glen Fisher (2012)
Michael Bourque and Glen FisherAs far as individuals who were instrumental in the development of railway technologies, Glen Fisher’s impact in the field of railway electrification cannot be overstated. An early career highlight came during the 1970’s and 1980’s, when Fisher led the design and commissioning of the BC Rail 50kV electrification of the Tumbler Ridge Subdivision, Canada’s first and only 50kV mainline electrification and only one of four in the world at this high voltage. Following a career at CP, he became the President of Canadian Pacific Consulting Services, where he carried out line capacity analysis for the World Bank on the densest traffic railway in the world, the Beijing-Shanghai line in China. His reputation as a recognized expert in railway line capacity and electrification has taken him all over the world and his technological contributions to Canadian rail still resonate across the industry today
