早些时候，美国当地媒体以《CRRC sets ship date for first MBTA Orange Line demonstration cars》为题报道了“中车制造”波士顿橙线地铁即将起运的消息——
SPRINGFIELD -- CRRC, which is nearing completion on its 204,000-square-foot rail car factory in East Springfield, will ship the first four prototype Orange Line MBTA cars from China to Boston Nov. 18.
The cars will leave via the Port of Shanghai and arrive at the Hub in December -- the first of the 404 Orange and Red line cars CRRC plans to build for the Boston-area subway in the next few years.
CRRC also passed on a video of the new cars shot at its factory in Changchun, China. CRRC is the largest maker of railway rolling stock in the world. But this is its first major foray into North America.
