FORT WORTH, Texas — In October 2022, following my attendance at the Railway Supply Institute Expo and Technical Conference, I also had a chance to visit Wabtec’s locomotive assembly plant in Fort Worth. My visit happened to fall on the day Canadian National accepted the first of a series of 50 remanufactured AC44C6M locomotives [see “Canadian National receives first diesel …,”Trains News Wire, Oct. 17, 2022], but before that brief ceremony, I had a chance to take a tour of the facility.
