BNSF LNG Conversion Project News
===================================

LNG Powered Locomotives:
BNSF 112 (GP60M)
BNSF 616 (CW44-9) <Converted to LNG Propulsion>
BNSF 1571 (SD40-2R) <Converted to LNG Propulsion>
BNSF 1802 (SD40-2)
BNSF 2300 (GP38-2)
BNSF 5815 (ES44AC) <Converted to LNG Propulsion>
BNSF 6969 (ES44C4)
BNSF 8127 (SD60M) <Converted to LNG Propulsion>
BNSF 9130 (SD70ACe)
BNSF 9131 (SD70ACe) <Converted to LNG Propulsion>

LNG Tankers:
BNSF 933500 <Converted>
BNSF 933501 <Converted>
BNSF 933502 <Converted>
BNSF 933503 <Converted>
BNSF 933504 <Converted>
BNSF 933505
BNSF 933506
BNSF 933507
BNSF 933508
BNSF 933509


BNSF still has five engines laid up for modification to Liquefied Natural Gas propulsion. GP60M 112, GP38-2 2300, SD70ACe 9130, SD40-2 1802 and ES44C4 6969 are still at La Grange and have been since September for this conversion. BNSF CW44-9 616, SD40-2R 1571, ES44AC 5815, SD60M 8127 and SD70ACe 9131 have been converted to LNG propulsion and are currently testing throughout the system.

BNSF has five tank cars laid up for Liquefied Natural Gas. BNSF 933505, BNSF 933506, BNSF 933507, BNSF 533508 and BNSF 933509 are currently at Topeka, KS awaiting conversion. BNSF 933500, BNSF 933501, BNSF 933502, BNSF 933503 and BNSF 933504 has been converted and is testing throughout the system.

LNG Locomotive - Tank Car Pairs:

BNSF 112 = (To be paired with BNSF 933507)
BNSF 616 = BNSF 933502
BNSF 1571 = BNSF 933504
BNSF 1802 = (To be paired with BNSF 933505)
BNSF 2300 = (To be paired with BNSF 933508)
BNSF 5815 = BNSF 933501
BNSF 6969 = (To be paired with BNSF 933506)
BNSF 8127 = BNSF 933503
BNSF 9130 = (To be paired with BNSF 933509)
BNSF 9131 = BNSF 933500"
