Description

A groundbreaking, first-of-a-kind locomotive made its long-anticipated debut in New Jersey recently thanks to the assistance of STV, a leading engineering firm, enabling NJ TRANSIT to take advantage of a locomotive that not only conserves fuel and reduces emissions and noise, but also increases operational flexibility across both electrified and non-electrified territories. The ALP-45DP, also known as a Dual-Powered Locomotive, is the first locomotive in the United States to be powered by the overhead catenary or by its twin diesel engines. Demonstrating its versatility, the first ALP-45DP locomotive to run on NJ TRANSIT arrived at Montclair State University Station in Montclair, NJ, under diesel power, raised its pantograph arm to make contact with the overhead catenary wire, and left the station for Hoboken Terminal under electric power.
