Biodiesel-blended fuels for locomotives

Railroads consider benefits of biodiesel-blended fuels for locomotives
Amtrak and Burlington Northern Santa Fe have been involved in trials using fuel that's 20% biodiesel. This can reduce energy emissions and improve energy security, but the extended use of locomotives and potential engine problems were a challenge. However, at the end of Amtrak's trial, Roy Deitchman, Amtrak's vice president of environmental, health and safety, said, "We're very happy with the performance."
