Electro-Motive Diesel says it has shipped its first new freight locomotive with Tier 4 emissions equipment to Minneapolis for the Railway Interchange railroad trade show Oct. 4 to 6. The new SD70ACe-T4 locomotive was built at Progress Rail’s Muncie, Ind., facility and moved north during the middle of September to Minneapolis covered in plastic shrink wrap. It’s one of five the company plans on building this year for testing.

Until this locomotive series from EMD, only GE Transportation fielded heavy hauling freight locomotives that comply with the latest U.S. environmental standards.

The SD70ACe-T4 is numbered EMDX No. 1501 and will be part of the outdoor exhibits during Railway Interchange’s four-day show that showcases the latest technology in the rail industry. BNSF Railway will host the outdoor exhibits at its Northtown Yard on the north side of Minneapolis.

EMD plans to showcase the locomotive and provide more details regarding the equipment used inside the SD70ACe-T4 at the show.

Trains will cover the show with live streaming broadcasts as well as articles in NewsWire. More information on the live streaming is available on this page.
