GE 'Fuel Test Train' for New CNG & Diesel Duel Fuel

Received the following from one of our correspondents in NW Pennsylvania.  

RR Friend Terry Sponsler caught this new General Electric 'Fuel Test Train' on CSX Transportation's rails in Willard, Ohio this afternoon (4-24-14). The two locomotives bracketing the orange and white Natural Gas (Cryogenic Natural Gas - CNG) fuel tender tank car are both duel-fuel diesel-electric locomotives that can run off regular diesel fuel or CNG. Success with this evolving technology could ultimately spell even busier engine assembly lines at the Grove City GE Diesel Engine Plant here in Mercer County.
