Talgo America

On August 21, 1941, Mr. Alejandro Goicoechea, a Spanish engineer, successfully completed the design and testing of a unique system of passenger rail cars. In early 1942, Mr. Goicoechea presented the unconventional project to Mr. Jose Luis Oriol y Uriguen, Mr. Oriol believed in the design and set out to develop and market this new railroad concept, incorporating Patentes Talgo SA (PTSL) in 1942.

Over 60 years have passed since that great initial venture six decades during which the rate of innovation has been maintained and has enabled Talgo to remain at the forefront of railway technology, producing Spainís most prestigious industrial product. Talgo has built a strong reputation for producing and maintaining high-quality, innovative and cost effective passenger cars in Spain. Since Talgo introduced its Pendular series of passenger cars in 1980, PTSL has extended its operations to other countries. Today, Talgo Trains provide daily service in Spain, Portugal, France, Germany, Kazakhstan, Canada and the United States.
