Bombardier awarded locomotive contract

Posted on February 22, 2008

Bombardier Transportation has received a contract from New Jersey Transit (NJ Transit) for 27 ALP-46A electric locomotives.  


The locomotives will accommodate extra capacity by hauling the specially designed multilevel commuter rail cars that Bombardier is currently delivering to the transit service provider.  


The new ALP-46A locomotives are based on service-proven ALP-46 electric locomotive technology that has been in successful operation with NJ Transit since 2002, and will feature a number of technology upgrades along with improved acceleration and increased operating efficiency.  


The contract includes an option for an additional 33 locomotives. Shipments are scheduled to begin in fall 2009.
