NS DC to AC Loco Involved in Derailment

One of the DC to AC tribute locomotives of Norfolk Southern was involved in a derailment late last week in Pennsylvania on the Pittsburgh line that resulted in minor injuries to the train crew.

The railroad has not said what caused coal train No. 593 to derail last Friday at CP McVey in Mattawana, Pennsylvania.

The train’s two locomotives and more than 20 cars left the tracks about 60 miles east of Altoona, Pennsylvania.

Involved in the accident was AC44C6M No. 4001, one of the first conversions carried out by NS shop forces. No. 4001 sports a blue and gray livery, one of two to have it.

The Pittsburgh Line was reopened on Sunday morning.
