NRE provides Ultra-Clean, longer service life road and switcher locomotives.

Following a five (5) year research and development period, NRE has introduced the N-ViroMotive product line of ultra-low emitting four (4) and six (6) axle road and switcher locomotives that feature multiple engine GenSet technology. World class and highly reliable electronic control systems manage all engine, alternator and traction motor functions for both optimal fuel management and significantly improved adhesion capability. The results provide our customers with a state-of-the-art locomotive that operates cleaner and has a longer service life than any other comparable road and switcher model locomotive.

The units are U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Tier II certified using Tier III Off-Road certified industrial diesel engines. The N-ViroMotive product line is also recognized by the California Air Resources Board as Ultra-Low Emitting Locomotives.

For international locomotive service, NRE has developed our versatile E-Series locomotive. These units are tailored to customer specifications and feature many modifications such as low profile, light axle configuration, various gauges and a wide variety of horsepowers.

Remanufacturing and overhauls are both options to increase the life of your locomotive. Remanufacturing will increase performance and add 15 to 20 years to the life of your locomotive, overhauls add 7 to 9 years. A remanufactured locomotive is disassembled to the frame and its components are distributed throughout the shop to be qualified and replaced as needed. Mechanical, electrical and rotating equipment parts are remanufactured using today's finest technology. The main frame, cab, long hood and truck frames are sandblasted, checked for wear, repaired and completely painted. Remanufacturing costs are about 60% of a new locomotive.

Overhauls are another option that offer significant savings. The exterior is cleaned and all mechanical and electrical problems are corrected as per the customer specifications. Each locomotive has a unique work scope to make sure the locomotive is getting the proper attention needed to become a serviceable locomotive for you in the future.

Upon completion, our quality control inspector checks the locomotive's on board performance and carefully notes the results. Final adjustments are made and your locomotive is ready.
