I dont think so. Are they being recalled right now?

Rotem usually make good products for markets outside of North America.

US is hard to sell to because of their FRA regulations.

I'm afraid they are not being recalled. They are probably still covered by warranty.

Is it like this in every set delievered?

These things happen, not that it should. But mistakes are more tolerable on railcars than say, airplanes.

Rotem is currently building stock for Boston commuter rail (MBTA) but it's been a difficult process with many delays and miscommunication.

That seems to be the case with many US customers. Not just Rotem,

Always delays

Hello, I was wondering if anyone has any updates or photos of the new maglev train being built at the Incheon Airport in Seoul? There has been articles saying that construction will be completed this year (2012) but I havent heard anything recently.

Does anyone know what is going on there?

Thanks,

Luke

If it had been filmed in a Gangnam Station, it would have just been packed with people!
