US workers receive subway technology training in China

A total of 33 employees from the Springfield, Massachusetts base of Chinese rail-car builder China Railway Rolling Stock Corporation (CRRC) Massachusetts have come to China for a three-month training program on subway technology.

It is the latest interaction between China and the U.S. on rail transportation, though the history of such interactions date back many years. In September 1872, 30 Chinese children were selected by the government of the Qing Dynasty (1644-1912) to study in the U.S., including a pioneering Chinese rail engineer named Zhan Tianyou.

The American employees are scheduled to receive training from CRRC Changchun Railway Vehicles Co. Ltd., based in Changchun, Jilin province. After going through technical training, the employees will be assigned to workshops to put their new knowledge into action.

The employees will eventually be in charge of CRRC subway contracts in Boston and Los Angeles. They are expected to pass on their knowledge to colleagues after returning to the U.S.
