MK WINS MARYLAND CONTRACT TO REMANUFACTURE PASSENGER LOCOMOTIVES

 BOISE, Idaho, July 27 /PRNewswire/ -- A $19.5-million contract to remanufacture 19 passenger locomotives for the Maryland Department of Transportation was announced today by Morrison Knudsen Corp. (MK) (NYSE: MRN).
 "We are gratified by the vote of confidence we have received from the State of Maryland," said William J. Agee, MK's chairman and chief executive officer. "This contract, combined with earlier awards in New York, Illinois, San Francisco and from Amtrak and Caltrans, solidifies MK's rightful place as a leader in rail transit manufacturing and remanufacturing."
 The work will be performed at MK's Boise Locomotive Shop and will begin later this year. Completion is scheduled for late 1994.
 During the total remanufacturing process, all major components will be removed from the locomotives and repaired, rebuilt or replaced with new materials. Once reassembled, the locomotives will be in a like-new condition with an expected service life of more than 15 years.
 In Maryland, the locomotives are used on commuter lines serving the state's major metropolitan areas.
 Morrison Knudsen Corp. is an international company serving the environmental, industrial process, power and transportation markets with complete development, design/engineering, construction, operating and financial services.
