Lower Cost, Higher Efficiency Locomotives

We’re using advanced manufacturing and the industrial internet to gather real time data that lets us continuously improve the quality of every piece of machinery we make. As a result, we’re increasing the range between refueling, enhancing performance and streamlining operations all while lowering costs for our clients and their 22,000 GE operated locomotives around the world.


Experience how access to what we call the “GE store” (GE businesses sharing technology and intellect) made inventing our U.S. EPA Tier 4 compliant locomotive possible.


DB Cargo – Europe’s largest rail freight company – and GE Transportation have signed an agreement to digitize 250 locomotives across Germany, U.K., France and Poland over the next five years. This marks GE Transportation’s first-ever European digital contract and a major milestone in the company’s efforts to create self-aware locomotives and digitize the entire rail operation value chain.

GE Transportation Digital Solutions newly created Innovation Lab, located in Atlanta, is a space dedicated for co-creation workshops with our customers to drive the transformation of the transportation industry from evolution to revolution. 

  • GE Transportation’s Rail Technology Leadership


    For more than a century, GE Transportation has been a leader in the rail industry, providing freight and passenger locomotives, signaling and communications systems as well as rail services to help solve the world’s toughest rail challenges.

    As a principal manufacturer of diesel electric locomotives, GE Transportation has produced a succession of world-class models and developed advanced rail technology that reduces operating costs, decreases fuel use, minimizes downtime and complies with stringent emissions standards. Today, more than 22,000 of GE Transportation’s locomotives operate in over 50 countries.


The Evolution locomotive is the most technologically advanced, diesel-electric, heavy-haul locomotive in the world today.

The PowerHaul is a powerful locomotive that can operate on existing railways and comply with stringent emissions standards while saving fuel.

GE Transportation’s Evolution Series Tier 4 Locomotive meets the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) stringent Tier 4 emission standards. The locomotive is powered by GE’s 12-cylinder EVO engine and requires absolutely no after-treatment system.

The design and operation of today’s Evolution® Series and AC4400 locomotives reflect GE’s expertise gained through the development of earlier product lines. That includes recent special models for passenger and international applications, the AC4400 locomotive for heavy-haul freight applications, and the DASH Series of locomotives. 

For more than a century, GE Transportation has been a global technology leader, helping solve the world’s toughest rail challenges with a succession of freight and passenger locomotives, signaling and communications systems, information technology systems and traffic control and dispatch services. 

GE Transportation just introduced its first dual-fuel locomotive retrofit kit that is expected to reduce locomotive fuel costs by up to 50%.

GE Transportation’s Lightweight offerings consist of the C30ACi Locomotive, the first AC diesel-electric locomotive to be introduced to sub-Saharan Africa. The addition of these new models, which will be used to haul freight and coal, will decrease life-cycle costs, improve fuel efficiency and reduce emissions.
