Amsted Rail is the global leader in truck systems and end-of-car components. For more than a century, Amsted Rail has provided performance driven solutions that deliver durability, reliability and safety to the freight rail market. With the addition of service-proven General Steel Industries (GSI) truck designs, Amsted Rail is ready to offer the same support to the transit industry.
In 2017, a Northeast Corridor transit agency opened a bid request for Multilevel III coaches. Collaborating with a global coach builder, Amsted Rail seized the opportunity to design, model and optimize GSI truck designs to exceed APTA, FRA, high-speed stability, and ride quality requirements. As part of its mission, Amsted Rail also sought to maximize the US content of its truck system proposal.
