Wabtec Corp. signed a contract to provide braking equipment to Bombardier Transportation Canada Inc., which is building 100 new commuter railcars for New Jersey Transit (NJ Transit).
Valued at about $12 million, the contract also includes draft gears and bench test equipment. Wabtec expects to start deliveries later this year.
The contract includes an option for Bombardier to purchase equipment for up to an additional 79 cars. NJ Transit awarded the commuter car order to Bombardier in 2010.
