BERLIN — The outlook for a number of transformative passenger projects, along with the potential for greater rail electrification, has the CEO of Siemens Mobility North America feeling optimistic as he contemplates the future of his business.

Head shot of man in suit
Marc Buncher, CEO of Siemens Mobility North America. Siemens

Marc Buncher leads a rapidly growing business in North America, with its Sacramento, Calif., manufacturing site employing approximately 2,500 people, up from 800 less than a decade ago, with another 1,500 in nationwide, primarily at signal factories and software centers in Kentucky, New York, and Pennsylvania.

Exclusively The trains Interviewing News Wire at the InnoTrans trade show, Buncher discussed the need for more and better passenger rail service in the United States, expressing his enthusiasm in particular for the California High Speed ​​​​Rail and Brightline project, both in Florida and in the Southwest, where Brightline West plans to connect Las Vegas, Nevada, and the Los Angeles area.

Buncher is clear that when one or more of these projects allow people to see how fast and enjoyable train travel can be, then more people will want to travel. He sees Brightline’s early experience in Florida as showing this; By offering a high level of overall service (such as connecting ground transportation and modern stations with first-class lounges), Brightline has established a brand that is more than just a train company.

New passenger equipment

Speaking of Siemens’ large equipment orders from Amtrak and Via Rail Canada, Buncher notes that major passenger investments are underway even before any purchases have been made in connection with the infrastructure bill of 105 billion US dollars. He hopes the first orders resulting from this funding will be placed soon, perhaps later this year.

While Amtrak rolling stock ordered in 2021 will primarily be designed to run Siemens Charger diesel locomotives, it will feature electric traction equipment. Some of the Venture push-pull trainsets will have what Siemens calls an auxiliary electric vehicle right alongside the diesel. This will be fitted with a pantograph and/or batteries, allowing the train to operate using either overhead power, if available, or on-board batteries, to power the Charger diesels’ traction motors via wired connections, even if the diesel engine is off. This would allow operation in places where diesel power is not permitted or desirable, such as in tunnels or some train stations.

Buncher thinks more electrification of passenger trains is likely and suggests the Pacific Northwest and California are possible locations, despite this week’s announcement that California will buy hydrogen fuel cell trains manufactured by Stadler [see “Stadler unveils first hydrogen train …,” Trains News Wire, Sept. 21, 2022]. And it confirms that Siemens will offer California high-speed rail operators an upgraded, U.S.-compliant version of the Velaro trains widely sold in Europe and currently delivered to Germany. To make high-speed rail an operational option, advanced cab signaling will be required; Buncher says an American version of the European train control system – which Siemens sells worldwide – would be the ideal solution. He adds that it should be made compliant with American standards and ensure that the software was produced in the United States.

New digital level crossings

Siemens is also heavily involved in the North American signaling market, with factories in Pittsburgh and Kentucky, and the company has brought its latest version of the ubiquitous cross-Atlantic railroad crossing barrier system to InnoTrans.

Apparently, small parts of the overall rail system like this are actually a big part of industry spending and level crossings are used all over the world, which explains the decision to expose it to many thousands of miles from home. The design and testing work is no less meticulous than that of new rolling stock.

Called S80, the new version of the familiar level crossing barrier mechanism – the existing model is the S60 – is designed to operate longer and with much less maintenance before it needs to be repaired or replaced. Existing crossing gates can operate approximately 500,000 times before the entire mechanism needs to be replaced, but the S80 can double that. Using a brushless DC electric motor and a gear mechanism that is lubricated for its lifetime once built, the new gate is cheaper to operate and maintain. Clever design means it raises and lowers the door with a smooth start and smooth finish, eliminating wobble that can contribute to wear. Siemens engineers believe this will allow the new design to operate 40% longer without repair.

The S80 was tested on three Class I railroads in the United States and Canada for three years, in areas that Buncher says deliberately included “all four seasons” and a variety of routes. As with almost everything in the modern rail industry, new equipment is ‘digital’, with internal displays showing the status of those responsible for maintaining the equipment; for extreme winter conditions, it has been designed to be worked by maintenance people wearing gloves. Longer term, it is equipped with Bluetooth, which means it can be inspected and maintained remotely. In the future, this may eliminate the need for cables from the adjacent signal pavilion.

New trains on display

As a company based in Germany, Siemens is unsurprisingly presenting new equipment at InnoTrans. Three of the company’s Vectron series locomotives are on hand: a 230 kilometer per hour (143 mph) passenger electric; a dual-mode electric/diesel; and the latest iteration of the design, a dual-mode electric/diesel being built for German freight company DB Cargo to replace older switchers and line haul locomotives.

Also on display are two versions of the European EMU Mireo from Siemens, both hybrids: one is fitted with batteries, while the other is fitted with hydrogen fuel cells instead of a pantograph, but also uses batteries for store energy. While Siemens will replace battery-powered and hydrogen-powered trains in North America, Buncher says it will be done using different designs, not the European Mireo.

War in Ukraine, sanctions have disrupted supply chains and sparked inflation: Prime Minister of Bangladesh Sat, 24 Sep 2022 06:27:59 +0000


Bangladeshi Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina joined forces on Friday against the use of economic sanctions because she said they did no good for any nation.

Hasina blamed the Russian-Ukrainian war and subsequent economic sanctions and counter-sanctions for disrupting supply chains that led to exorbitant price hikes for fuel, food and consumer goods.

“It has put an economy like ours under enormous pressure. Inflation has increased. (And) we are taking various initiatives to overcome this situation,” Hasina told the 77th session of the United Nations General Assembly in New York.

She said Bangladesh believed that “antagonism like war or economic sanctions, counter-sanctions can never bring any good to any nation”.

“Mutual dialogue is the best way to resolve crises and disputes,” she added.

Russia launched a war on Ukraine in February, forcing millions of Ukrainians from their homes, leaving thousands dead and injured while property and infrastructure worth billions was destroyed. It has also affected energy supplies, as massive sanctions aimed at punishing Moscow for the war have restricted the flow of oil and gas supplies from Russia to the world.

On the most persecuted community in the world, the Bangladeshi Prime Minister says the prolonged presence of the Rohingya in the South Asian nation “has caused serious ramifications on the economy, environment, security and socio-political stability in Bangladesh. “.

“Despite our bilateral engagements with Myanmar, our discussions with our partners in the trilateral format, and our engagements with the UN and other partners, not a single Rohingya has been repatriated to their ancestral homes in Myanmar,” he said. she declared.

Bangladesh is home to more than a million Rohingyas who were forced out of their native Burma after government forces inflicted inhumane treatment on the mostly Muslim community.

Hasina said political unrest and armed conflict in Myanmar, a Buddhist-majority nation in the southeast, “has made the repatriation of displaced Rohingya even more difficult”.

Urging the UN to play an “effective role in the repatriation of Rohingyas, Hasina said: “Uncertainty over repatriation has led to widespread frustration.”

“Organized cross-border crime, including human and drug trafficking, is on the rise,” she said. “This situation has the potential to fuel radicalization. If the problem persists, it could affect the security and stability of the entire region, and beyond.

]]> September 23 Live Updates: Oil Hits 8-Month Low, Pound Falls After UK Mini Budget Fri, 23 Sep 2022 20:15:14 +0000

Scotland faces a dilemma following the UK Chancellor’s mini-budget as business leaders urge the devolved administration to match tax cuts to avoid further divergence with England which could risk economic underperformance.

Leftist critics have meanwhile urged Nicola Sturgeon’s government to focus on fixing inequalities and funding services.

On Friday, Kwasi Kwarteng’s mini budget statement abolished the top tax rate of 45p on earnings over £150,000, replacing it with a single rate of 40p.

The Prime Minister faces a tough decision that by matching tax cuts the Scottish system will become less progressive and anger supporters while a growing divergence that includes stamp duty may reduce the appeal of live and do business there.

The Scottish Government sets its own income tax rate. The country has a maximum rate of 46p for the pound, while that on income between £43,663 and £150,000 is set at 41p.

Liz Cameron, chief executive of the Scottish Chambers of Commerce, said businesses would “eagerly welcome” Kwarteng’s policies and expect Holyrood’s government to “provide parity” with the rest of the UK.

“Divergence between nations risks undermining business and investor confidence,” she said.

Edinburgh should take a “more progressive approach”, said Philip Whyte, Scottish director of the Institute for Public Policy Research, a left-wing think tank.

He urged Scotland to use the extra £600million it expects to receive as a result of tax cuts elsewhere in the UK to fund ‘community services and social security to protect families most exposed to the cost crisis”.

The Scottish Greens, who govern with Sturgeon’s Scottish National Party, have condemned the mini-budget as “the politics of shareholders, bankers and the super rich”.

Six Apply for Hancock Police Chief Open | News, Sports, Jobs Fri, 23 Sep 2022 07:01:29 +0000

HANCOCK — Hancock has received six applications from potential candidates for chief of police, City Manager Mary Babcock said at Wednesday’s city council meeting.

Chef Wayne Butler will retire at the end of November. He has held the position since 2014.

The post had been advertised through the heads of state association and nationally. Councilors Whitney Warstler and Richard Freeman Jr. have indicated they would like to serve on the committee. Babcock said she would also contact other law enforcement agencies in the area to have someone fill the other spot.

Candidates include people local and from as far away as Wyoming, Babcock said.

Also on Wednesday, Hancock’s Downtown Development Association completed the purchase of the former Risto’s Hardware Store building on Quincy Street.

“We’re going to look at what we can do in the display cases that have plastic pendant lights, to at least try to light up that place until the (request for proposals) is complete,” said Babcock.

Michigan Economic Development Corp.’s Redevelopment Ready Community program. will work with the city to conduct feasibility studies for the property.

The council also approved the Michigan Department of Natural Resources trust fund grant to purchase waterfront land that will give the city connectivity along the Navy Street Trail. The project total is $231,900 with a local counterpart of $60,300. The city has already done the environmental assessment and title search, Babcock said.

Then the city will do an appraisal of the property and meet with the owners of the title to see if the city can buy it at that price.

The DNR would be willing to work with the city if more money is needed, Babcock said. Although the city must reapply, the chances of success are higher than if the city applied for an entirely new grant.

In other actions, the council:

• Heard of Babcock, the city is trying to spread the word about the proper way to apply the new trash stickers. People are asked to fold the sticker in half at the top of the bag so that it sticks to itself. The city recently switched to stickers instead of personalized trash bags.

• Approval of Up and Running’s bid for $10,545 for new front door locks for City Hall and Police Department entrance and evidence room.

• Approval of Dave’s Hancock Service estimate of $8,120.84 to remove and replace the engine assembly of the 2016 Tahoe police vehicle.

• Approved the sale of the town’s 1983 Vactor truck to Tim’s Excavating for $20,000.

• Approved the Recreation Commission’s recommendation of $35,000 for the construction of a new garage at Hancock Driving Park. The estimate covers the cost of building materials, Babcock said. The Department of Public Works will dismantle the current garage and build the new one.

PG&E says electrical equipment is getting safer Thu, 22 Sep 2022 22:37:51 +0000 The beleaguered utility Pacific Gas & Electric Co. told state regulators on Thursday that the organization’s new leadership is producing significant changes, making Northern California’s power grid safer and less likely to start a fire. of forest.

The company has reformed its culture so that it now quickly escalates issues and comes up with new ideas on how to operate better, officials told a safety hearing. Preventive blackouts – as targeted as possible – have become the norm when fire danger is high, plans to underground 10,000 miles of cables over the next decade are underway, and technology that detects better power line problems, such as sparking, has been widely deployed.

But with the utility’s long track record, which includes sparking some of the largest and deadliest wildfires in the state, the reported improvements have ways to remedy the company’s poor reputation.

“Every day, we remain focused on safety, and it’s at the forefront of everything we do,” said Adam Wright, the company’s executive vice president of operations and chief operating officer.

He later added, “We know we have a lot of work to do.”

Thursday’s hearing was a review of state utility practices, hosted by the California Public Utilities Commission and the new Office of Energy Safety Infrastructure, which oversees utility companies and the state’s power grid. San Diego Gas & Electric also showcased its safety enhancements on Thursday. Other public services were in the spotlight last week.

The investigation follows the escalation of wildfires caused by electrical equipment in recent years. Since 2017, firefighters have blamed PG&E equipment for starting more than two dozen large fires, including the 2018 campfire in the Butte County community in Paradise that killed 85 people and set fires more than 18,000 buildings.

The company has since filed for bankruptcy, which it emerged from two years ago with a new reorganization and new management. President and CEO Patti Poppe, who started in January 2021, has made changing the culture and creating a stronger, more resilient power system top priorities.

The effort will be led by Ford’s chief financial officer, John Lawler, on an interim basis until a chief supply chain officer is selected. Lawler comes at a time when parts and raw material costs for automakers and suppliers have skyrocketed during the coronavirus pandemic. The increases came amid serious supply chain issues, including an ongoing global shortage of crucial semiconductor chips.

On Monday, Ford said recent negotiations resulted in inflation-related supplier costs $1 billion higher than expected in the third quarter. The announcement, including a pre-release of some earnings forecasts, sent Ford stock to its worst day in more than 11 years.

Jonathan Jennings, Ford’s vice president of supply chain, will also take on additional responsibility for technical support and supplier quality, Ford said. He will report to Lawler.

The supply chain plans were announced in addition to other management changes and appointments relating to electric vehicles, product development and other areas of the business.

Ford said the changes are an acceleration of CEO Jim Farley’s “Ford+ plan for growth and value creation.”

Maplewood History: The Fischer Bros. Meat Market. Wed, 21 Sep 2022 05:37:16 +0000

A few weeks ago I published an article titled “All Ziegler and a bit of Fischer”.

Well, thanks to the generosity of Brad Ziegler, by the time I had posted all of Ziegler, I had run out of time and energy, so I promised to post my Fischer material in a follow-up. That’s it.

As I mentioned, Jim Fischer gave Luke Havel and me a box that contained a large number of items. Many articles were interesting but had no connection with our beautiful city. I forwarded some to my neighbor, Adam Kloppe, who works for the Missouri Historical Society. You may have heard it on the radio. He and some of his colleagues produce some very interesting audio clips on Missouri history. I hear them on KDHX. Anyway, I figured Adam would know what to do with these random historical bits of the hard copy. After all, he is a professional.

Jim Fischer also gave us a wonderful digital gift… a high resolution copy of a historic image of his family’s first meat market. We had this picture in our collection but it wasn’t very good. So here’s that picture and some other stuff. In a future post, I’ll share some of the other quirks that were in Jim Fischer’s box. Thanks again, Jim.

This is the image of our collection that we had before Jim Fischer’s donation. It’s not very good. Obviously came from a slide.

This is the much better version that Jim gave us.

It was their father who was executed for his part in the notorious Haymarket Ri0t in Chicago. Having been a member of the United Auto Workers for the past 54 years, I take my hat off to this gentleman. He paved the way. The image is from Wikipedia.

Now I would like to show some of the images from the Ziegler collection again, because these two families were so closely related. Thanks again to Brad Ziegler.

Hope you can read this one on your phones.

We don’t want to leave out the Post-Dispatch.

A nice group photo to finish.

I thought you might be curious about the locations of the two stores these families owned, the Fischer Bros. Meat Market and Ziegler Bros. Hardware. So using Photoshop…

Ziegler Bros. Hardware is very visible in this image from the 1904 Suburban Journal. Thanks to Joellen McDonald.

This is the image the Ziegler brothers placed in their 1904 Suburban Journal ad.

Here is a look from the opposite direction. I believe this image is courtesy of Donna Ratkowski.

Ziegler Bros. hardware store. did exist in 1904, but it does not appear in the 1912 Maplewood directory.

It’s a fascinating story. There are a few other avenues I would like to explore. As I’ve mentioned in the past, posting on this blog is like a job in that it stretches to fill the time allotted to it. I will end here. If I discover other interesting elements, I will certainly publish them in the future.

It’s still summer. 97 degrees today. Atmospheric happiness as far as I am concerned but a drop is coming. Tomorrow the high will be right in the 70s. I know, I know, some of you are cheering.

		NEXEN TIRE supplies two new original tires for Hyundai Ioniq 6
		Tue, 20 Sep 2022 06:21:00 +0000

  • The premium all-season tires N’FERA AU7 EV and N’FERA Sport EV from the South Korean tire manufacturer, both supplied for the all-new Hyundai Ioniq 6

SEOUL, South Korea, Sept. 20, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — NEXEN TIRE, one of the world’s leading tire manufacturers, today announced the delivery of two of its original equipment, the N’FERA AU7 EV and the N’FERA SPORT EV tires for the new Hyundai Ioniq 6.

With its sleek design and world-class aerodynamic performance, the Ioniq 6 can achieve a range of over 500 kilometers per charge. Additionally, it displays a range of lighting technologies that communicate with vehicles and people, including two-tone mood lamps, flexible and comfortable interior spaces and interactive pixel lights. Additionally, it utilizes a 400V/800V multi-quick charging system and V2L functionality in addition to delivering dynamic driving performance, industry-leading safety and convenience specifications.

NEXEN TIRE’s N’FERA AU7 EV, which is supplied for the new Ioniq 6, is a premium all-season tire that provides excellent stopping power and comfort in various weather and road conditions. By applying an optimized compound, fuel economy and wear performance are significantly improved. In particular, noise is reduced by optimizing the arrangement between pattern blocks and applying multi-sequence using AI big data to improve low-noise design, which is the main requirement of electric vehicles.

The N’FERA Sport EV tire offers good performance on wet and dry roads while guaranteeing the best drainage space. It also improves braking performance on wet roads by increasing stiffness through the use of block deformation prevention technology applied to the side grooves of the tire. High-speed driving stability and handling performance have been significantly improved through the optimization of the pattern design, and grip and braking power have been increased through the use of a specific compound to adhesion.

Both products have been developed to distribute the stiffness ratio of each block in the pattern as evenly as possible and to maximize the contact area with the road surface to prevent wheel spin which can be caused by load and the high torque of the electric motor. vehicle. In order to greatly reduce the resonance sounds emitted while driving, the inside of the tire has also been fully lined with ring-type sound-absorbing materials. These materials perform exceptionally well in terms of sound absorption.
