Norfolk Southern Buys 3 Susie Q SD70Ms

The latest used locomotives to join the Norfolk Southern motive power fleet are three former New York, Susquehanna & Western SD70Ms.

Built in 1995, the locomotives wear the Susie Q’s yellow-and-black paint livery. The locomotives also have seen service as lease units to CSX and on short line Indiana & Ohio.

Road numbers for the SD70Ms on NS will be 2797-2799, right below the recently acquired SD75Ms.

NS will perform renumbering and minor repairs to the SD70s at its shops in Altoona, Pa. NS does not expect to repaint the three units before placing them in service.
