Trains For America

More choices for better transportation

Rail car manufacturing in Nebraska

This note from a Japanese business journal. Japanese high speed trains are about to appear in Europe, and they are in the commuter car business over here. Who knows where this might lead?

Kawasaki Heavy Industries Ltd. boasts of delivering more cars for New York City Transit’s subway services than any other manufacturer. Recently, it spent about 3.3 billion yen to expand a train manufacturing facility in Nebraska. Kawasaki Heavy has received orders for trains for commuter services in suburban New York City. The firm’s cars are well regarded for their reliability.

KHI aims at accelerating its business expansion in the United States by doubling the facility’s manufacturing capability by 2008 to 40 cars a month.
