DOT Secretary Ray LaHood had a blunt message Tuesday for states that want to spend their high speed rail grants on highways or rail freight projects: Use the grants for passenger rail or return the money to Washington, said LaHood.
Thermo King said late Monday it is launching two new refrigerated rail units in time for the Intermodal Association of North America’s Intermodal Expo, Nov.14-16, in Fort Lauderdale, Fla.
The company says its SB-210RR+ will be on display at the Expo at the Thermo King booth (#911); it also is introducing the SB-310RR+. The company’s website notes both models “incorporate the latest fuel-saving technologies while delivering the BTU performance the market demands.”
The units, powered by TK486V engines, exceed “EPA Interim Tier 4 requirements for NOx and particulate matter emissions,” the company says.
