The Spring 2018 Arbitration & Rules Committee Meeting was held last month at CF Rail Services in Schaumburg, Illinois. Below, AllTranstek provides brief meeting highlights.
The single greatest approved rule change this year is regarding Replacement Treaded Wheel Sets (Purchased Core Wheelset). A purchased core wheel set is a turned wheel set that is added to the supply of wheel sets via the purchase from an outside source to fulfill turned wheel set demand. These new wheel sets will reduce the number of new plate mounts and car owners will receive a better mix of repair and return treaded sets, replacement treaded sets, and new mount sets at repair locations. New replacement treaded wheel sets will save car owners $15-$23 million annually.
