The Indiana Rail Road and diesel engine maker Cummins continue to partner to showcase the latter’s new QSK95.
The engine meets Environmental Protection Agency Tier 4 emission standards and can be configured in power outputs of 4,000, 4,200 and 4,400 horsepower
Cummins said the QSK95 reduces nitrous oxide by 89 percent, particulate matter emissions by 98 percent and hydrocarbons by 97 percent.
The QSK95 is being tested in CECX No. 1919, which was built from Union Pacific SD90AC No. 8559.
The test program on the INRD will last for a year and involve pulling trains of coal, intermodal, and manifest freight.
