Author: juicejunkie

...The Napa Valley Wine Train converted the ALCO FPA-4s to burn 60% natural gas and 40% diesel fuel mixture to improve combustion and reduce emissions. In 2008, FPA-4 73 was converted to burn 100% Compressed Natural Gas.

From the wine Train's web site: "The Napa Valley Wine Train started a program for the experimental conversion of a Napa Valley Wine Train ALCO locomotive to 60% natural gas and 40% diesel fuel mixture. In 1999 the conversion became permanent. A total conversion of locomotive 73 was completed and it was put into service using 100% Compressed Natural Gas on 5/14/08."
