Waste is a greener thing to mind with KLW

The New York & Atlantic Railway (NY&A), Waste Management of New York (WMNY) and the New York City Department of Sanitation have joined forces on a Locomotive Repower Project to redesign and repower a diesel-electric freight locomotive with state-of-the-art low-emissions diesel technologies supplied by KLW (Knoxville Locomotive Works). The U.S. EPA, through the National Clean Diesel Funding Assistance Program, as authorized by the Diesel Emissions Reduction Act (DERA), is funding this project.
