Used to be a Common Bellevue Sight

Well into the Norfolk Southern era high hood locomotives were a common sight working trains in Bellevue.

The photograph above, though, was made in the early NS era. GP40 No. 1372 was built in August 1967 for the Norfolk & Western.

The N&W and Southern, particularly the latter, ordered locomotives in that era with high hoods.

Note that behind the 1373 is a unit still in its N&W markings but with a short hood. The date is July 12, 1984.
