Progress Rail Showcases Lifecycle Customer Solutions at Railway Interchange

 Minneapolis, MN – Progress Rail, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Caterpillar Inc., has unveiled an interactive, complete rail ecosystem experience at Railway Interchange, the largest railway exhibition and technical conference in North America, taking place this week at the Minneapolis Convention Center in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

The experience has been created to offer customers a realistic view of Progress Rail’s extensive rolling stock and infrastructure solutions – for customers at work in the yard, shop or on the track. The application will be available to help customers navigate their product, technology and service requirements, including modernization and overhaul efforts.

While at the show, the company also strengthened its commitment to developing and bringing to market advanced rail technologies, including battery power for switcher locomotives and drop-in power replacement, train automation and locomotive electronics to further optimize rail operations.

“Every day, all around the world, our customers work hard to sustainably move goods and people – our products, innovations and support services make that possible through our strong relationships and commitment to quality,” said Progress Rail Chief Executive Officer Marty Haycraft. “With railroads pivoting to a heightened focus on streamlined, cost-effective operations, we will be there to serve our customers with reliable, lifecycle coverage for every step of their journey – now and for the next wave of rail innovations.”

Progress Rail will exhibit in the Railway Supply Institute (RSI) section at Railway Interchange, Hall C, Booth 2621.
