Canadian Pacific Evolution Hybrid
After years of research and development, Evolution® Series locomotives by General Electric recently hit the rail, and they’ve quickly proved to be the most technologically advanced, fuel-efficient, and environmentally friendly diesel locomotives in history. A leader in modern railroading, Canadian Pacific has a full fleet of ES44AC Evolution engines in their line, 200 in total. Their reliance on these modern engines reflects the railroad’s commitment to improving fuel efficiency and strict adherence to current environmental standards that minimize pollution.
The EcomaginationSM team of GE is already at work designing for the future, taking the success of their eco-friendly ES44 series of locomotives to the next level. Witness GE’s Evolution Hybrid Locomotive – the most efficient and cleanrunning, high-horse power locomotive in existence. Soon, testing of the original Hybrid prototype will be complete, and this most modern of all engines will be ready for work on the modern railroad lines.
Bringing the future to you today, Lionel offers a special version of the Evolution Hybrid decorated in the dramatic red livery of Canadian Pacific. Very similar to the railroad’s non-Hybrid version of this locomotive, the Canadian Pacific Evolution Hybrid comes equipped with the same incredible features and details of Lionel’s original GE’s Evolution Hybrid - the ultra-modern and ecofriendly battery boxes along the side of the engine and dramatic “charging lights” that flash in motion along the sides near the walkway deck.
