A fellow Long Islander now living in Nebraska caught these coming out of the Kawasaki plant and posted this on Facebook:

This picture wasn't taken in Nebraska.
The car bodies are made there and shipped to Yonkers without the trucks and wheel sets.

And these particular cars were pilot cars built in Japan. They've never been in Nebraska.

You can see the LIRR employees and third rail. No contact shoes however, must be day of delivery.

the M-9's ARE build in Nebraska even the car bodies, yonkers only does warranty works , the Kawasaki plant has a test track with third rail.
