Norfolk Southern Engine Sends Snow Flying And Gets The Job Done!
Railfans get their cameras out in all kinds of weather!
This Norfolk Southern SD60E was captured at a crossing Buffalo, New York, hi balling through town. We love to hear the sound of the horn and screeching of the metal wheels against the rails as she whips up the snow into powder clouds.
NS #6939 is a custom rebuilt SD60 that improved the cab with a Norfolk Southern crescent design along with new electronics and upgrades to the engine. Engines in this category also include Norfolk Southern’s popular #6920 Veterans Unit “honoring our veterans” along with the Norfolk Southern 9-1-1 unit “honoring our first responders”.
