Wabtec Corp.’s MotivePower subsidiary has been awarded an option order to build an additional 20 MPXpress commuter locomotives for Toronto, Ontario-based GO Transit for $85 million.


This contract is in addition to an original order for 27 locomotives, which have already been delivered.


The locomotives will contain a number of components produced by other Wabtec subsidiaries, including braking equipment, relays, contactors, air compressors, brake shoes and radiators.


The additional locomotives, which will be built at MotivePower's Boise, Idaho facility, are scheduled to be delivered in late 2009 and 2010.
