WEAR-RESISTANT FILLER KEEPS RAIL CARS ROLLING

The Chesapeake and Ohio Railway Co. uses a new patented process to reclaim bolster bowls on freight cars. The new process involves the use of a wear-resistant alloy filler metal. The process cuts costs by 60% compared with the old method, builds bolster bowls that last three to four times longer than bowls repaired by the old method, requires fewer inspections, and avoids the need to grind or machine the bolster bowl to finished inside-diameter specifications.
