GE highlighted the work that goes on at their Fort Worth, Texas locomotive factory this week.

“Some of these locomotives are 25 years old and they’re in a midlife crisis,” says Pascal Schweitzer, vice president of services for GE Transportation. “They come here for an extreme makeover. When they leave, they will be ready to roll for a couple more decades.”
