Siemens to build Pennsylvania locomotives

Siemens has landed another locomotive contract in the USA: the latest deal will see its Sacramento plant supplying electric units to Philadelphia rail operator SETPA.

The €118 million contract is for the manufacture and maintenance of 13 electric locomotives.

Due to be delivered in early 2018, the locomotives will operate services around Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

SEPTA general manager Jeff Knueppel said: “The purchase of these new locomotives are the first of several new vehicle purchases which are part of SEPTA’s Building the Future program.

“We are looking forward to their arrival to help provide faster and more reliable regional rail service for our rapidly growing ridership.”
