NJT ALP-45 Dual Power  
This section gives a brief overview of all Bombardier Dual Power locomotives running for New Jersey Transit (NJT) from the USA. NJT decided to team up with Agence Metropolitaine de Transport (AMT) from Canada, to find a modern and efficient solution for passenger services on both electrified as non-electrified track sections of its network. The result is the massive ALP-45 series, a locomotive that is both a full fledged diesel and electric locomotive. It operating concept is very similar to the older ALP-46 and ALP-46A series. Technically Bombardier could also implement modules from the Traxx family.

NJT ordered 26 such units in 2008. The order was officially announced in July that year. In 2010 the board of NJT approved an additional order for 10 units.
