In 2012 the bright lights of Hollywood were shining on Wilson & Company! We were requested to provide railroad track and bridge engineering services for the 2013 movie, The Lone Ranger, starring Johnny Depp.
The project included the design of approximately 3,075 feet of track and one new bridge in an isolated southern Colorado canyon. Additional services included geotech, utilities, environmental, drainage, and erosion control.
Kudos to our multi-discipline project team!! The film might not have been a critic favorite, however, “not one, but two amazing train sequences...” were nominated for an Academy Award for Visual Effects!
