EPA’s Beverly Banister to speak at Atlanta unveiling of nation’s first Eco locomotive
Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal will also preside over the historic event.
The Eco locomotives are exciting developments in clean-air technology and were created by Norfolk Southern using components from Progress Rail Services’ Electro-Motive Diesel, a locomotive builder. The new locomotives use switch engines in rail yards. They were partially funded by the federal Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality Improvement Program.
