Industrial Design students present new ways to think about passenger rail service

Four senior lab teams, led by then-fourth-year industrial design students Jeremy Connell of Richmond, Va., Chris Padilla of Shelton, Conn., Phil Padilla of Shelton, Conn., and Nathaniel Ball of Independence, Va., working with Ron Kemnitzer, chair of the Industrial Design program, and Bill Green, associate professor of industrial design, developed design concepts for a high-speed train for passenger rail service for the proposed Southeast High Speed Rail Corridor from Richmond, Va., to Charlotte, N.C., and Atlanta. The students were invited to present their high-speed passenger train designs to the American Public Transportation Association’s annual meeting in Chicago in June 2009.
