The first day of the GEAPS Exchange, held in Louisville, KY, featured a series of presentations coined the Idea Exchange. The second of two sets of presentations, "What's New?" featured a new product showcase. The following is the final installment of three-part series covering the new product presentations.
Lower energy use, better color rendering are a couple of the benefits you’ll reap from XP LED/MHD LED lighting from Rig-A-Lite, Houston, TX.

MU&GO “plus” rolled out its remote control system for locomotives. Humorously referred to as a “giant toy” by David Tenney, locomotive products manager for Control Chief Corp., the product provides some management advantages. The unit is portable, weighs less than 85 lbs., takes about ten minutes to set up on a locomotive and lets an operator direct the locomotive remotely.
