The Rail companies are looking to join forces to compete with industry leader CRRC Corp. of China, which was formed from a 2015 merger of the country’s two main regional train makers.
Aided by its ability to finance entire projects, CRRC has won high-profile rail orders including transit contracts in U.S. cities such as Boston, Philadelphia and Los Angeles.
In a trade complaint, Boeing accused Bombardier of selling the single-aisle jetliner to Delta Air Lines Inc. at less than fair value, while benefiting from unfair government subsidies in Canada.
With the exception of a two-aircraft order from Air Tanzania in December, Bombardier hasn’t booked a major sale of C Series jets since Delta committed to buying at least 75 of the planes in April 2016.
