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

"I’ve been wrapping my arms around the announcement this week that BNSF Railway will test-fuel locomotives with liquefied natural gas (LNG), with a view toward starting large-scale conversions away from diesel fuel as soon as 2014. This is a game-changing development, and holds out the promise of altering railroad economics even more than the switch from steam to diesel locomotives seven decades ago."
