Burlington Northern used to use a series of specially modified tanker cars to act as a tender for a pair of locomotives to help cut down on fuel costs when traversing their mainlines that had poor to no cost effective diesel to fuel up with en route.

So, this is old hat to me, aside from the fuel they intend to use.

Here are some links to websites that have information and photos about those fuel tenders/tankers:
