The relationship is Clean Energy’s first for a rail application.

GE conducted a test using LNG in a converted dual fuel locomotive on May 24 in Erie, Pa., Clean Energy says. Fuel was provided from the company’s Pickens LNG Plant outside Houston. Clean Energy also provided GE with “fueling equipment and operational fueling consulting.”
