The Federal Railroad Administration disclosed last week that the state’s High-Speed Rail Authority was seeking exemptions from the Buy American Act on more than a dozen critical train parts including motors, gearboxes, axles, wheels, brakes, derailment mitigation devices, undercarriages and even the entire aluminum car body shells. . . The Bay Bridge often is held up as an example of a poor decision to use foreign suppliers for U.S. infrastructure projects. . .
