    Most forward looking statements are wishful-thinking. I have rarely heard forward looking statements that were doom and gloom.

    Greentongue, I am not sure. Most US automakers retool their plants in July for the next years production run. So I would suspect that any new contracts at this time would be for the 2016 production year at the earliest.

    RA, based on that broad definition, a steam powered ship is a "hybrid".

    I know for a fact that CAT has a tier 4 engine.

    Valleywood,
    Good point. The locomotive OEMs are using urea to address the current emissions requirements. Whether this will have an impact on the viability of battery powered yard engines, I cannot say. Just keep in mind that there are other companies trying to address the emissions requirements in alternative ways than the NSC.

    Bubbleking,
    Also consider that depending on the industry, many established companies won't bid on an order unless the expected profit margin is 15% or greater.
    I am not certain that the PbC will be as potentially profitable for NSC and BMW as it appears to be for ePower.
    In the case of NSC, their fuel cost is not subject to state and federal excise taxes that are applied to the retail sales of diesel fuel sold for vehicles generally operating on public roadways.
    Axion may be out of the R&D phase but their potential customers are not.

    Anything is possible. But I'd rather see the glass as half-full.

    I now suspect that the NSC may be more interested in possibly making money off their patents rather than actually building a fleet of battery powered locomotives.
    With a small workforce EMD can build 10 new diesel engines per day. It takes the railroads days to overhaul one diesel engine.
    I have not been to a rail yard, maintenance shop since 2006. So things may have changed. But in the past, the railroad maintenance processes were not competitive with OEM or private repair shops like Progress Rail.

    JP,
    Why do you expect an Axion PR on Monday? Are we officially out of the quiet period?

    I never attempt to make money on the stock market. I buy on the assumption that they could close the market the next day and not reopen it for five years.
