MannTek has supplied couplings to Florida East Coast Railway 

Florida East Coast Railway has become the first North American railroad to adopt LNG (liquefied natural gas) for its entire line-haul locomotive fleet.

FECR on Nov. 9 officially rolled out its 24-unit fleet, consisting of 12 pairs of back-to-back GE ES44C4s with a purpose-built Chart Industries fuel tender in between, at Bowden Yard, Jacksonville. FECR, a Class II regional, is also the first railroad to haul LNG as a commodity, under a Federal Railroad Administration waiver.
