MBTA General Manager Rich Davey was in Korea this week, touring the Hyundai-Rotem plant in Changwon, which is building four test coaches for the MBTA. The T reports Davey paid his own way.

The T has a $190-million contract with the company for 75 of the double-decker cars, some of which are expected to begin rolling on local rails in December for testing, with the rest slated for delivery between next summer and the winter of 2013. Aside from the four test coaches, all will be built in a Hyundai-Rotem factory in Philadelphia - which, with any luck, will have solved the labor and manufacturing problems it's now having with coaches meant for the Philadelphia equivalent of the MBTA.
