    LONDON, ON, May 8 /CNW/ - Global Railway Industries Ltd. - (GBI:TSX):
Global Railway Industries Ltd.,, ("Global" or the
"Company"), a leading North American provider of railway products and services
announced today that its Board of Directors has determined that the number of
directors to be elected at the upcoming Annual Meeting shall be six, instead
of seven, as originally contemplated in the Management Information Circular.
The reduction is in response to the resignation earlier this week of Phil
Ogden from the Board, which reduced the number of candidates proposed by
Management for election, and communication from several significant
shareholders of their support of a smaller Board.
    As indicated in an earlier press release, several significant
shareholders had communicated their desire to change the composition of the
Board from what had been proposed in the Management Information Circular. The
Board remains optimistic that a compromise satisfactory to those shareholders
can be reached before the Annual Meeting.
    In light of the foregoing matters, the Board has waived the deadline for
the deposit of proxies in respect of the Annual Meeting.
