Seriously? They are "demonstrators" for Australia. Bring them to Australia and demonstrate them!
No customers. Expect them to be here by years end, is what I was informed by a manager from Muncie.
What a simple straightforward concept. I wonder why the Phds and MBAs never thought of that?
My understanding is it isn't as straightforward as that.
From my understanding due to EDi Downer selling their 'Heavy' side of their business to Progress Rail, Progress Rail couldn't "Demonstrate" their wears in Australia while negotiations were being had between themselves and EDi Downer, even though EDi Downer were meant to be being supplied by Progress Rail, Muncie. So, Progress Rail could only "Demonstrate" in the U.S. by having prospective customers come to them, but with the market, rather quite in Australia, no one was really interested in going to the U.S. when they could wait and use surplus traction here ala VLs, ELs & whatever else is sitting around.
