New Autonomous Battery-Electric Trains Are Coming For Your Diesel
Electric trains are commonplace in commuter rail systems, but they have yet to make an impact on the freight shipping business. That is beginning to change. The latest development on the rail electrification front involves the St. Louis, Missouri, company Intramotev, which aims to push diesel fuel out of the locomotive picture with a fleet of battery-electric autonomous rail cars.
