ATLANTA, GA—August 24, 2011 (James Street Media Services)—Railserve, the leading North American provider of in-plant rail switching and associated services in the United States and Canada, has joined with Engine, Fuel and Emissions Engineering, Inc. (EF&EE) to identify and apply for federal and state grants available to buyers of the Railserve LEAF® Gen-Set Locomotive.
“We’ve seen interest rise in our green switching locomotive and we’ve also learned that many potential buyers need assistance in identifying and obtaining the grants that are available for purchasing these cleaner and more efficient units,” says Timothy J. Benjamin, president, Railserve.
