Amtrak cars will be made in Rochelle
CHICAGO (AP) – The company that makes Japan’s bullet train cars has been selected to manufacture a fleet of next-generation passenger cars for Amtrak rail corridors in the Midwest and California.
Illinois, Michigan, Missouri and California are teaming up to buy the 130 bi-level cars for $352 million from a joint venture by Nippon-Sharyo and Sumitomo Corp. of America.
Transportation authorities in Illinois and California said Wednesday that cars will be produced at a plant operated by Nippon-Sharyo’s U.S. subsidiary in Rochelle, pending an audit to verify that the cars and components will be produced and assembled in the United States.
