July 8, 2014
ELMIRA (WENY)- Earlier today, Congressman Tom Reed toured CAF U-S-A in Elmira, as the train maker dispatched their first set of passenger cars to Albany. The Elmira facility received a $300 million contract from Amtrak to produce 130 long-distance passenger cars. Reed says this is a great opportunity for the area's workforce to promote trade skills. The contract between CAF USA and Amtrak is a multi year, multi million dollar project that employs over 700 local residents.
