History: The ALP-45DP is a type of single cab dual-mode locomotive built by Bombardier Transportation for use by NJ Transit and Exo. The ALP-45DP is an electro-diesel locomotive design derived from Bombardier's ALP-46/A and TRAXX locomotives.[35][note 3] Design requirements included mass less than 288,000 lb (131,000 kg), length less than 75 ft (22.86 m), and EPA-compliant emissions. The bodyshells of the locomotive were constructed at Bombardier's Wrocław site, the bogies at Siegen, and the alternators at Hennigsdorf factory. The locomotives were assembled at Kassel.

Railroad/Company:
Bombardier Transportation is the rail equipment division of the Canadian firm Bombardier Inc. Bombardier Transportation is one of the world's largest companies in the rail vehicle and equipment manufacturing and servicing industry. The division is headquartered in Berlin, Germany and has many regional offices, production and development facilities worldwide.
The core of the Transportation division was formed with the purchase of Montreal Locomotive Works (MLW) in 1975. In 2001 Bombardier Transportation acquired Adtranz from DaimlerChrysler, and became by many measurements the Western world's largest rail-equipment manufacturer. After the Adtranz acquisition in 2001, Bombardier Transportation moved its core manufacturing strategy for Europe with a few legacy plants in North America for the smaller North American market.

Bombardier supplies rail vehicles, systems and services to major transit and airport authorities across the world. Their installed fleet includes high-speed trains, commuter trains, locomotives, light-rail vehicles, subway vehicles, monorails, signaling systems, and fully automated transit systems.

Bombardier entered the U.S. rail transportation market in 1976 and won its first major U.S. contract for 825 subway cars in New York City in 1982. Today, Bombardier's rail business employs U.S. workers in locations across 12 states. This includes two manufacturing sites outside Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania that build rail products for both domestic and export markets, and one in Plattsburgh, New York, that builds rail vehicles for U.S. customers.

Bombardier also operates a network of maintenance centers supporting commuter rail fleets in Baltimore, Los Angeles, Orlando, Miami, and San Diego. They provide operations and maintenance services for a light rail fleet in southern New Jersey as well. They manage operations and maintenance services for driverless transit systems in 14 U.S. cities, and have a vehicle and component refurbishment center in New York. Our U.S.-based parts distribution center for rail is in Plattsburgh, New York.

In January 2021, Alstom completed the acquisition of Bombardier Transportation.
