The SkyTrain project was linked to Vancouver hosting the 1986 transportation and communication-themed Expo 86World Fair, an event that pump-primed the city rising profile and fortunes. The system originated in eastern Canada with the Ontario (later Urban) Transportation Development Corporation (UTDC), a body funded to create a mode of Intermediate Capacity Transit System (ICTS), being between light rail and heavy rail/metro as its shown in Vancouver rail map. SkyTrain uses moving-block automatic train control which allows for very short headways and facilitates rapidly changing capacity according to demand. Intrusions onto the tracks are detected by an alarm system fitted throughout. Over the sections carrying both lines, peak frequency is every two minutes. The single line lowest frequency is every eight minutes.
Port of Vancouver is served by three Class 1 railways as its mentioned in Vancouver rail map: transcontinental Canadian National Railway (CN Rail), transcontinental Canadian Pacific Railway (CP Rail). Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railway (BNSF). Additionally, local railway service is also provided by Southern Railway of British Columbia (SRY), a transporter of freight in British Columbia Lower Mainland and Fraser Valley. CN Rail and CP Rail service the on-dock rail facilities at the port container and cargo terminals. Loading and unloading on dock saves transit time with less handling, reducing potential damage and costs for the shipper. CN Rail and CP Rail have key sections of track to improve the fluidity of rail operations.
