NS SD60s and SD70s
Author: fatnrat

Word on the street is that all remaining standard cab SD70's are to be withdrawn from service soon and sent for storage pending rebuilding as SD70ACC's. Also heard that all standard cab SD60's and dozens of SD60I's are being retired soon. PSR is well underway with NS.

From what I hear from insiders,the PSR changes have been occurring rapidly since the management change/shakeup the week of Thanksgiving. Lots going on,more to come! The STB is requiring weekly updates from NS,I assume in an attempt to avoid a CSX type of implementation.

Thanks for the update. Only 2 dozen SD70s running. They're going fast. (2539 in North Charleston SC yesterday afternoon).

How does rebuilding locomotives add up to PSR?

Maybe,,,,,,,,just maybe, the rebuilds, if done properly, are more reliable then the "new design" Tier 4, highly sophisticated crap that is currently available.

They still have quite a few locmotives to purge from their lease roster before I would imagine they would begin selling anything (to lease companies no less).
