NICKEL STAINLESS STEELS HELP STRETCH TRANSIT DOLLARS

Starting in 1931, stainless steel was used for lightweight railway cars. Almost two-thirds of all passenger cars in Europe are of stainless steel and almost all new cars built in the U.S. in the past 25 years have been of this material. Corrosion resistance, strength, ease of fabrication, impact resistance and fire resistance are among the qualities which recommend these alloys for the car application.
