NS Executive F9A Street Running Augusta
Norfolk Southern’s Executive #4270 on the streets in Augusta, Georgia!
NS #4270 heads out of town with a full load of golf fans after the conclusion of the Masters Golf Tournament.
General Motors Electro-Motive Division (EMD) produced 99 A units (cab versions) and 156 B units over a period of 7 years spanning 1953 to 1960. Today, Norfolk Southern maintains four of these locomotives as part of their executive fleet.
The EMD F units were all nicknamed “bulldog nose” because of the their distinct front end profile.
Some F9 locomotive characteristics include:
- Builder: General Motors Electro-Motive Division
- Horse power: 1,750
- Maximum speed: 90 mph
- Fuel capacity: 1,000 gal
