Union Pacific unveiled a new train on Wednesday designed to cut emissions by over 80 percent.

The company is planning on using the Green Goat at its switching station in Fresno to move cars from one train to another. Built by RailPower Technologies Corp. of Vancouver, British Columbia, the diesel-electric hybrid engine is designed to emit 16.5 fewer tons of smog-causing nitrogen oxides per year than a standard train engine. It will also reduce diesel fuel use by 50 to 80 percent.
