Are trains more energy efficient than other types of transportation? What is the future of trains as the U.S. considers policies related to climate change and greenhouse emissions? We’ll discuss steam, diesel, and electric railroad locomotives, including their history, how they work, use energy, and impact the environment. This session is illustrated with slides of locomotives and trains from all eras.

Instructor: Walter Simpson, retired UB Energy Officer
