Dual-Mode Locomotives Make Their Debut

NJT has unveiled its first ALP-45 dual-mode locomotive.  The engines will be able to run under electric wire and will also run on diesel fuel for nonelectrified operation.  They may be used to provide through service to Penn Station from points west of Dover on the Morris & Essex Line and west of Montclair on the Montclair-Boonton Line.  The new engine is not certified for service yet.  It has not been announced when it, and others yet to be delivered, will be placed into service.
