Railways to move over to LNG?
I just saw a scrolling news in the local channel, tried searching the net and stumbled upon this.
Railways working on development of LNG-based locomotives
How feasible is using LNG for locomotives? Are they going to utilize current diesel engines to use LNG? The nation's development is so dependent on fuel and based on this, isn't this a great move provided the prototype comes out good?
Mods, please move this to an appropriate section or merge with an existing discussion. I couldn't find any and saw that this section discusses a bit on locomotives.

Re: Railways to move over to LNG?
It is a nice initiative, at least will reduce the burden on economy due to crude import.
I spotted a test locomotive running on Bio-Diesel in Chennai not sure if its already been spotted. Hope these things reduce the over-dependency on conventional sources.
