CETEST carbody frame structural test for New York Metro

In October, Cetest started the carbody frame structural test campaign for the three carshells of the new Vacuum cleaner train for NYCT; this vehicle will be used for New York Metro maintenance and cleaning. These tests are performed for Socofer, the French manufacturer responsible for  3 VAKTRAK unit trains supply to the American operator. CETEST has recently performed this type of tests in North America. It features: ViewLiner II for Amtrak, PRIIA bi-level for California and Illinois for Nippon Sharyo and South Florida locomotives for Brookville Equipment Corporation. All of them were executed under Federal Railroad Administration inspector’s supervision and approval.
