Brookville Equipment Corporation has promoted Joel McNeil to Executive Vice President. He will continue to oversee the Business Development department and will also take on additional strategic leadership and organizational development duties.

Brookville Equipment Corporation describes itself as “a world class American manufacturer of innovative powered transportation solutions for the mining/tunneling, rail freight and passenger transportation industries. Brookville contributed to the first American manufactured streetcars since the 1950s in 2001 and has modernized, manufactured, and remanufactured PCC and heritage streetcars and trolleys for the New Orleans Regional Transit Authority (NORTA), the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Authority (SFMTA) and the Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority (SEPTA). Building upon the company’s 100-plus years of rail-mounted vehicle manufacturing experience and nearly two decades of streetcar manufacturing, Brookville introduced the innovative Liberty Streetcar design in 2012, with the pilot order delivered to Dallas, Tex., in 2015. Later in 2015, the Liberty Streetcar onboard energy storage system (OESS) was honored with the LRTA’s Global Light Rail Award for ‘Technical Innovation of the Year.’ Additional Liberty Streetcars are currently in operation for QLINE Detroit, Oklahoma City Streetcar, and The Hop in Milwaukee. The Liberty NXT design is currently on order for Valley Metro’s Tempe Streetcar, Sound Transit’s Line T, and Portland Streetcar.”
