Colorado Railcar embarks on nationwide tour

Posted on May 1, 2003

Promoting the first diesel multiple unit (DMU) approved by the Federal Railroad Administration for mixed freight service in the U.S., Colorado Railcar is taking its vehicle on a tour of America. The self-propelled commuter railcar debuted at the American Public Transportation Association’s 2002 Annual Meeting in Las Vegas and has been travelling around the country ever since. The car is both a commuter passenger car and a diesel locomotive that can pull up to two additional coaches. Upcoming touring states include: California and Alaska in July; Alaska, Washington, California, Colorado and Illinois in August; and Texas, Louisiana, Georgia, D.C. and Florida in September. Keep posted on when the DMU will be stopping through your city by going to www.coloradorailcar.com.
