WILMERDING, Pa., April 12, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Wabtec Corporation (NYSE: WAB) expects 2012 first quarter earnings per diluted share to be about $1.20, and the company increased its 2012 full-year earnings per diluted share guidance to about $4.80, based on full-year revenue growth of about 12 percent.  Previously, the company's full-year guidance was for earnings per diluted share of about $4.30 and revenue growth of about 10 percent.

Albert J.
