Wabtec to Modernize 330 NS Locomotives

Norfolk Southern and Wabtec have agreed on a contract whereby the locomotive builder will modernize 330 NS locomotives.

In a news release, Wabtec said the work will improve fuel efficiency and reduce emissions on each unit.

It is the third modernization order NS has placed with Wabtec since 2015 with more than 950 locomotives expected to be completed by 2025.

The locomotives in the latest order are D9-44CW units that are more than 20 years old.

They will be converted into AC44C6M locomotives, which Wabtec said will add another 20 years of life to each locomotive.
