MASSDOT HERALDS ARRIVAL OF 20 BALLAST CARS

The purchase of 20 steel ballast cars by the Massachusetts Department of Transportation will make track work easier and save money on leasing equipment, according to the department.

At a cost of $3.2 million, the cars that arrived last week are expected to last 50 years and will obviate the need for renting similar equipment, according to MassDOT, which said it cost $109,000 to lease ballast cars in fiscal 2017.
