New Jersey Transit no. 4408 leading a long distance passenger train into Summit station NJ. 4408 is an electric locomotive of the type ALP-44. As those who are familiar with European trains can probably recognise, it is a close relative of the Austrian classes 1043 and 1044, and is based on a Swedish design by Asea. Asea Brown Boweri ABB built these in 1989-97 and NJT bought 32 of them. This one was delivered in 1990. In 2012 New Jersey Transit took all of its ALP-44 machines out of use and stored them for potential further use. Picture at Summit station 16.4.2002 by Ilkka Siissalo.
