Project Description

This project will fund the conversion of three diesel locomotives to zero-emission battery power. The battery powered locomotives will be fully compatible with Metra's existing fleet and will be capable of operating on any Metra line that uses diesel-hauled trains. The batteries will provide motive power as well as onboard systems such as lighting, intercoms, and HVAC.
