Default Popular Mechanics January 2006

Has anyone seen the January 2006 Issue? They outline a new hybrid Engine that GE is working on, they are planning on capturing the electricity that is produced from the dynamic braking of the Locomotives.. they have an awsome picture of the GE plant in Erie PA.
The article starts by talking about The "Evolution" being a more fuel efficient 12 cylinder Engine as apposed to the 16 Cylinder engine producing the same amount of power. And it's supposed to use 200,000 fewer gallons of fuel over the lifetime of the engine..

Anyone seen this article yet?
