Greenbrier obtains TTX order for 1,100 intermodal wells

Today, The Greenbrier Cos. announced it received an order for 1,100 double-stack intermodal wells from TTX Co.

Scheduled for delivery in fiscal-years 2005 and 2006, the cars still are subject to final approval by TTX's board.

In May and June, Greenbrier received orders for about 7,000 rail cars valued at $400 million, mostly in North America. The orders include 4,700 double-stack intermodal wells and 400 box cars for TTX Co. — the car builder's largest-ever contract, Greenbrier officials said in statement released in June.

Greenbrier builds cars in the United States, Canada and Mexico, and repairs and refurbishes cars and wheels at 13 North American facilities. The company also owns about 11,000 cars and produces rail castings through an unconsolidated joint venture.
