Florida East Coast (FEC) Railway partnered up with The Safety Train, to enable FEC and other railroads and environmental service companies to provide hands-on instruction regarding hazardous materials transportation equipment and LNG.

FEC has turned to LNG as a locomotive fuel and completed the conversion of its entire mainline fleet to run on liquefied natural gas (LNG).

Fran Chinnici, SVP and chief operating officer at FEC said the company’s goal is to provide employees, customers and first responders with the knowledge required for safe operation.

The company operating in the U.S. state of Florida has been operating on LNG since late 2015 and has so far completed over 2,300 trips on liquefied natural gas, and according to Chinnici, it is the first North American Railroad to operate its entire mainline fleet on LNG.
