LOCOMOTIVE SPOTTED!

A report in today’s Bryan Times says that Nor­folk South­ern Railroad’s one-of-a-kind Vet­er­ans Loco­mo­tive was spot­ted near the Ohio 107 over­pass Wednes­day morn­ing.

Diesel No. 6920 was ded­i­cated Nov. 12 at the railroad’s head­quar­ters in Nor­folk, Va., to honor employ­ees that have served in the mil­i­tary.

Nor­folk South­ern employs 4,200 vet­er­ans and mem­bers of the National Guard and Reserves, which rep­re­sents 14 per­cent of its total work force.

The Vet­er­ans Loco­mo­tive is part of Nor­folk Southern’s “Her­itage Fleet” cre­ated in 2012 to mark the company’s 30th anniver­sary. That fleet fea­tures 20 other loco­mo­tives, each painted to rep­re­sent key pre­de­ces­sors of the Nor­folk South­ern line.

The Wabash Rail­road, which used to be head­quar­tered in Mont­pe­lier, is also rep­re­sented in the fleet.

If you missed it in per­son, pho­tos of the engines can be seen on the company’s web­site, http://www.nscorp.com.
