A very extremely rare sight as a brand new electric engine #4512 from New Jersey transit gets towed to Saint Louis, Missouri for emissions testing on train #MYCAS-12.

It looks a little bit like a single-cab German. Do you know who designed this type?

Or maybe it isn't supposed to be in freight consists. I mean look at what happened when CN tried to transport F59PHs in a freight consist.

That is true! I seen it in Saint Louis doing testing. I think these people are correct about Sandy flooding it out. It was a cool sight though for sure!!!

Maybe it was damaged by hurricane Sandy. I read that NJ Transit lost 35% of their engines to Sandy - [link] .

That is what I am wondering? Not sure why they did that but makes it all that more interesting actually! :D

Emissions testing on an electric? Ummm... Someone please correct me if I'm wrong here, but, uh, aren't electrics, like, non-polluters. As in not producing pollutants themselves? As in only polluting by way of a stationary power plant?...
Oh wait... I see fuel filler caps on the side there.
An electric with a diesel engine gen-set...?

I agree with you, Tom! I am just going by what I was told by a few sources. But where ever it is headed they want it to be on a wagon. I was told it could be both and that it is one of NJT's new units. I guess we will have to see what it does!

Huh, that is indeed very interesting! Though like everyone else, I don't get why they don't just tow it on its own wheels, but I'm sure they've got some reason for that. :XD:

Probably because of the mileage or not being tested yet? It was cool either way for me! Electric loco's are rare period in Illinois!

Fascinating sight! I'd have expected they'd simply let it roll on its own wheels; after all, this type is in daily use, so it doesn't seem to be a derailing risk.

I thought the same thing. I thought it was going to be behind the engines and about missed it. I am not sure why it is heading Westbound because NJ is on the East coast of the US! LOL! Just never know what will roll down the rails now days...
