LEAF is a Tier 3 or 4 environmentally friendly locomotive that is manufactured in America. Railserve, a leading industrial rail services company, chooses to use LEAF locomotives in the operations they manage due to their reduced emissions and efficiencies. Designed specifically as a railcar switching locomotive, or shunting locomotive, the LEAF is also a cost-effective solution for many short line operations and is available in standard or narrow gauge.
The single engine LEAF contains a 600 horsepower Cummins generator set for power. The Dual LEAF contains two generator sets to provide 1200 hp, double the power and higher the speed.
The LEAF locomotive reduces fuel usage by up to 65% when compared to a conventional locomotive.
Tier 4 LEAF locomotives reduce particulate emissions by 99% and NOx emissions by 92% when compared to conventional units.
Service is easy with the LEAF locomotive. It’s built with 100% new parts. LEAF parts are very common and easily acquired. This makes maintenance and repairs simple and cost effective. Routine maintenance minimizes downtime and increases longevity.

The LEAF locomotives are manufactured by US Craftsmen at our locomotive shop in Longview, Texas, USA.
