EMD to Display Tier 4 Locomotive at Show

Electro-Motive Diesel is displaying its first new Tier 4 emissions compliant freight locomotives at a trade show this weekend in Minneapolis.

The new SD70ACe-T4 was constructed by Progress Rail in Muncie, Indiana. The locomotive is one of five that EMD plans to build and test this year.

EMD has fallen behind GE Transportation in the market for heavy-hauling locomotives that meet U.S. environmental standards. GE Tier 4 locomotives are already in regular service.

EMDX 1501 will be shown at the BNSF Northtown Yard during the four-day Railway Interchange trade show, which features the latest railroad industry technology.
