Another Iteration of the NS ‘Mane’ Livery

NS third DC-AC

Norfolk Southern has another version of the “mane” livery that it is applying to rebuilt DC to AC conversion locomotives.

Known as the “Roanoke prototype, the difference between Mane 1 and Mane 2 is that the latter has Tuscan red accent striping along the simulated flying horse mane.

The scheme has been applied to ACMC6M No. 4000, which was originally standard cab D9-40C No. 8789.

The rebuilding took place in the Juniata Shops in Altoona, Pennsylvania, which also rebuilt and applied the Mane 1 livery to DC to AC conversion unit No. 4004.
