100 Pennsylvania Pitcairn Borough (Allegheny Counthy), Conway Borough (Beaver County) and Shire Oaks Township (Washington County),  The project involves converting four traditional yard and local switch locomotives into two mother/slug sets.  Approximately 92 percent of the iron and steel content in the project is of US origin. Each Mother locomotive retrofit will contain a locomotive engine rebuild kit, and the reuse of a locomotive frame, refurbishment of traction motors and trucks and a new locomotive cabs.   Each accompanying slug unit will require a slug electrical kit, and refurbishment of trucks and traction motors as well as a new cab.   Foreign make of items in the slug are limited to the sub components of truck springs, traction motor gears, a percentage of each of the bearings and bearing assembly used in the trucks, the casting for the brake head, and 10 percent of the new locomotive Cab.  Foreign items in the Mother unit are limited to 10 percent of the value of the each of the following: New Locomotive Cab, Stainless Steel Trim, Stainless Front Wall, Side Wall Kit, and the Split Cooling Hatch.   These items are all subcomponents of the Cab or Car body.  The final items contain mixed foreign and domestic iron or steel are all sub components to the locomotive trucks.  These sub components include the cylinder lever mounting pad, cylinder head, brake shoe, truck spring, bearing traction motor roller, gear axle and bearing assembly.   None of these items are available from a non-domestic supplier. The locomotive engine kit subcomponents and the remaining parts (assembled at the Juniata Locomotive Shop) that are believed to be nondomestic content cannot be acquired in sufficient quantity, quality, or price to fully meet the needs of this project.   All parts that can be replaced with domestic content have been incorporated in the project to boost the domestic content percentage to 88 for all iron and steel components on the locomotive engine kit and to 98.6 percent for the slug.   When combined together to form the project the blended total domestic content is 92 percent weighted by cost.    Absent a waiver, the project as proposed will likely be canceled.   The cancellation of the mother/slug project would have a devastating effect at Juniata and at the OEM's primary engine kit manufacturing locations, most notably the LaGrange, Ill., and Muncie, Ind., facilities owned by Progress Rail Services and Electro-Motive Diesel.  All total, the project impacts some 9,000 jobs at these three locations. 2 84240
