Our expansion includes the purchase of eight acres of land, the purchase of two adjacent buildings, and significant upgrades to our current shop with the addition of new overhead cranes, additional track, additional offices, and more. Coming off successful tests on two Class-I railroads and a commercial chemical plant, KLW is poised to make a significant impact with our green locomotive product line.

If you are interested in working for KLW we will be accepting applications in January, 2014. You may apply at: resume.klw@gmail.com

Advertising in Railway Age and Trains magazine!

Hello everyone! We are running an ad in this month's Trains and Railway Age magazines! This is to announce the new switcher Tier 4 package that we are now producing. Our single-engine Tier 4 solution is great for railroads, industries, governments, and many more entities that want to repower their switching locomotive(s) to improve on emissions, fuel efficiency, and tractive effort. Our repower package uses an existing alternator/generator and meets sub-1005bhp Tier 4 emissions requirements without the use of aftertreatment. Check out the ad below! 

KLW Participates in the Joint Rail Conference.

The 2013 Joint Rail Conference was in Knoxville from April 15th to the 18th and Knoxville Locomotive Works and Knoxville Locomotive Corp. participated in full force.

Our booth was set up at the Knoxville Convention Center for the entire conference. We handed out brochures, 4GB jump drives in the shape of credit cards, a countless number of Andes Mints, and flyers for our impressive shop tour. Our shop tour featured our 2250 demonstrator locomotive and next to it was our 2-8-0 steam engine that was built in the year 1890. Everyone who visited seemed to enjoy themselves thoroughly.

We met many people at the Joint Rail Conference. From university students to pioneers of technology, it appears the railroad industry has a bright and exciting future. We would like to thank everyone who visited the shop and stopped by the KLC booth to check us out!
