No, Bombardier the transportation company; aerospace, transit (LRT,
subway, commuter, commuter rail, etc.), and yes, snowmobiles. Most of
the major transit authorities around North America (requiring rail and
light rail systems) have dealt with them in some capacity. Florida's
very big on them, since they've got a plant in Jacksonville. I know
Broward County, Jacksonville, and Miami use their stuff - I wrote the
monitoring software for MDTA's light rail loop.

Ever heard of Metrolink? Who do you think built those rail cars?
