TC&W to Use B2 Fuel in Locomotives on MN Rail Line.

Local Minnesota newspaper the Redwood Gazette recently reported that Twin City & Western Railroad (TC&W) has announced plans to begin using B2, a fuel blend of two percent biodiesel and 98 percent standard petroleum diesel, in its Minnesota Prairie Line (MPL) locomotives.

According to the paper, TC&W senior vice president Mark Wegner said that although some locomotive engine manufacturers do not include warranties for biodiesel use, Caterpillar, which provides the engines used by MPL, does.

The Redwood Gazette noted that MPL is the first rail line in the state to use a biodiesel fuel blend in its locomotives.
