The Vet Locomotive Makes a Surprise Move

Norfolk Southern locomotive No. 6920, the “Honoring our Veterans” unit, paid a surprise visit to the Cleveland area on Monday morning.

The last word was it was that it was the trailing unit on train 34N, but sometime Sunday night it was set out and added to a 64N crude train in Cleveland.

I was just heading out the door at the yard office in Motor Yard to go to the east end and assist this train in adding a rear buffer car when I saw this colorful consist pass by.

Between having to assist this particular train, the horrid weather and the early hour I was only able to grab a quick photo of it as it dropped the conductor off to help make the move.

Although it is not the best photo I’ve ever taken, it does show this neat unit at the east end of Motor Yard.
