Lilee Systems has been selected by Alstom to provide its CMU-2100 family of products.

Keolis Commuter Services has finished cleaning all commuter-rail cars operating from Boston's North Station, and will clean all passenger cars operating out of South Station in the coming weeks. The work is part of Keolis's effort to improve the passenger experience since taking over operation of the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority's 14 commuter-rail lines July 1. The train-cleaning program involved more than 100 people working more than 8,000 hours scrubbing more than 1 million square feet of equipment, according to a company press release.

RR Mergers & Acquisitions has been engaged to sell a fleet of 10 EMD passenger-rail F-40-PH-2 locomotives and 11 EMD freight locomotives.

WAGO is focused on growing its North American facilities. "We have several expansion plans under way. In Germantown, Wis., we will be expanding our current facility starting next year. This mirrors our growth globally," Artmann said.
