After the Nippon Sharyo fiasco at Amtrak, not only did they close the Rochelle plant, it’s looking like they don’t want any North American busienss now. Before Rochelle, South Shore cars were built partially in Japan. NICTD is actively looking at other bidders and it appears N-S doesn’t want to work with Super Steel like they once did.
If I was Bombardier I would use this as a "We can do this" since they can make a single level EMU (a modified M7) or Kawasaki could give them a M8) while they overhaul the M9s.
On topic, have any of the Siemens cars been completed yet?
