Construction Engineering Research Laboratory (CERL)

CERL partnered with Vehicle Projects Inc. and Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railway to develop a fuel-cell hybrid switch locomotive for urban rail applications. A fuel cell locomotive does not need extensive power lines and it provides the advantages of traditional catenary-electric and diesel-electric locomotives without causing noise and environmental pollution.
The most powerful fuel cell land vehicle ever built
