YONKERS - With the help of a grant, a rail car company will keep rolling in Yonkers.  

Kawasaki Rail Car has been manufacturing trains for the NYC subway and other transit systems on Wells Avenue for 25 years.

With the help of a $500,000 grant from the Empire State Economic Development Board, Kawasaki purchased the property it formerly leased for $25 million.

The company had considered moving across country to its Nebraska plant.

Kawasaki's decision to stay in Yonkers is good news for the 380 workers who will keep their jobs.
