I don't have anything more, as the title suggests they constructed broad gauge railway lines, I have a map of a all lines constructed by the RE in France and the dates each section was completed but no Coy numbers for the workforce. I would think Army Troops possibly Corps.

A maybe is to read the online war diarys for the Canadian Constuction Battalions and see if 259 Coy RE is mentioned.
