New, unused Talgo trains in Milwaukee could find a new home

April 15, 2014

Two brand new, high-speed passenger trains idling in a north side Milwaukee building that originally were manufactured for the state of Wisconsin by Spanish train-maker Talgo Inc. may soon be put to use.

Michigan’s Department of Transportation issued a request for proposals in March for ready-to-operate trains capable of 110 mph speeds for its Wolverine service between Chicago and Detroit for August delivery. While neither the agency nor Talgo would confirm the train-maker submitted a proposal, there aren’t many companies with fully built trains sitting around… [although the TALGOs] are the subject of a lawsuit about who owns the trains.

Rest of the story at the Journal Sentinel, 14 April 2014.
