Cummins QSK95 is manufactured at Seymour Engine Plant, Seymour IN. It is the cleanest and most durable Tier 4 locomotive engine available today, Cummins said. The engines are used in marine and power generation applications.

Cummins said rail transportation is vital to the economy in Indiana with roughly one-third of the freight reaching across the country. The Indiana Rail Road Company supplies several items to central and southwest Indiana and central Illinois.

The QSK95 is capable of reaching a top speed of 125 mph.
