Try contacting Mr. Naresh Patel, P.E., Right-of Way Engineer, of Metrolink
(Southern California Regional Rail Authority).  He was our coordination contact
for many of our bridge retrofit project, for both the design phase and
construction phase.  Part of his work involves interacting with BNSF, UPRR,
Amtrak, METROLINK, SPR, etc.

Yes, the major rail carriers (UPRR and BNSF) will review design and
construction of any bridge before they will operate on the track.
Therefore, it is best to get them involved early so that there will not be
problems at the end.  They typically assign an engineer from the bridge
section to provide review and feedback during design and construction.  They
will also provide a final inspection before they operate on the tracks.
