Genesee & Wyoming Inc. (G&W) has announced that two new U.S. EPA Tier 4-compliant low-emission locomotives completed trials and are now in service on its subsidiary California Northern Railroad Company (CFNR).
Built by Knoxville Locomotive Works in Tennessee, the two new 2,400-horsepower diesel locomotives use selective catalytic reduction technology to meet the most stringent emissions requirements set by the EPA. Their high-efficiency, 12-cylinder MTU engines are expected to provide fuel savings of 25 per cent and reduce diesel emissions – carbon dioxide (CO2) and oxides of nitrogen (NOX) – by 80 per cent compared to the two circa-1976 locomotives being replaced.
