New port locomotives are efficient, expected to move more cargo

Port Manatee's two new locomotives are coming online. They are expected to save 50 percent on fuel costs and emit 80 percent less of one type of greenhouse gas. They will also be the heart of the port's rail transport system for the next 40 years or so as they transport commodities between ships in port and the state's rail network.
