Today is the final day of InnoTrans 2012, and I finally have the opportunity to connect my phone to wi-fi so I can post a few of the videos I took. These are from the outside train exhibit. Tomorrow the tear down process will begin, and I can’t imagine having to coordinate tearing down some of these booths and displays.
Also, I saw a model of the M8 Car at the Kawasaki booth. The M8 Car is equipped with TransTech pantographs! Very Cool!
All in all, InnoTrans was pretty amazing. Our sister companies, Stemmann Technik and Brecknell Willis, created a very cohesive and unified booth and were able to display our pantographs, third rail, shoe gear, Frost® grounding brushes, and carbon collectors for pantograph head assemblies. Furthermore, both Stemmann and Bombardier were displaying the Variopanto which they worked on together. And, as I walked around, I saw a few other joint ventures which Stemmann has their hand in. It was good to see Stemmann having such a wide ranging influence on the transit market, and I think everyone was pleased with the outcome of this year’s InnoTrans.
