GE Modernizes 100 NS Locomotives

GE Transportation said it has finished modernizing 100 locomotives for Norfolk Southern.

The work involved giving locomotives upgraded control systems and in some cases converting the units from DC to AC traction.

The work was performed at the GE locomotive assembly plant in Fort Worth, Texas.

“”We’ve seen our modernization program grow 20 times since 2015,” said Pascal Schweitzer, GE Transportation’s vice president, services. “Over the last decade, GE has transformed more than 2,000 locomotives for customers worldwide, including for the majority of the Class 1 Railroads in North America as well as international customers.”

So far in 2018 GE has received 225 orders for locomotive modernizations.
