CA Ports, PHL to Introduce Clean Diesel Locomotives.
According to PHL, the replacement program, which is part of a new 10-year extension of an agreement with the two ports, calls for PHL to replace its existing fleet of harbor diesel-electric locomotives with 16 locomotives equipped with new diesel engines that exceed Environmental Protection Agency "Tier 2" standards for reduction of air pollutants.
In addition, PHL would acquire two alternative fuel locomotives -- one using liquefied natural gas and the other incorporating hybrid diesel battery technology.
