The Northern Alberta Railways

The Northern Alberta Railways. The pride of northern Alberta's Peace River Country until CNR bought the railway in 1980 and absorbed the little railway into its system.

CN is testing two retrofitted diesel 3,000-horsepower locomotives in northern Alberta (on the 300-mile run north from Edmonton to Fort McMurray) fuelled primarily by natural gas instead of diesel to lower fuel costs and reduce carbon dioxide emissions.  The hybrid engines are burning 90 per cent natural gas, with 10 per cent diesel fuel for ignition. They are expected to reduce CO2 emissions by 30 per cent and NO2 emissions by 70 per cent over a locomotives life cycle, CN said.
