Honoring our Veterans

Train Tuesdays

From Norfolk Southern:

ALTOONA, PA. and NORFOLK, VA. – Norfolk Southern is placing a one-of-a-kind “Veterans Locomotive” into freight service on its system to honor people who have served in the military and reserves, especially those employed by the railroad.

No. 6920 is an SD60E model that will operate primarily in general freight service. Its red, white, and blue paint scheme, and yellow ribbon with the message “Honoring our Veterans,” was selected by a group of 18 NS employees representing all branches of the armed forces.

“At Norfolk Southern, we are very grateful for the service of our railroaders, their families, and all veterans,” said NS CEO Wick Moorman. “The Veterans Locomotive is a rolling reminder of their contributions and sacrifice in the name of freedom…”

I dashed out after work on Friday to try to get a picture of the locomotive on NS Train 37Q, but I missed it. However, you can check out the link to see the official picture.
