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.
