A couple of Norfolk Southern Highnose locomotives! I saw these switching the Grain Elevator down here in Northwest Georgia. I'm thinking I may build this set of locomotives to add to my layout, but I'm not sure...

These are nice units and with the broad palette of black parts, they should be decently easy to MOC.

I love the Norfolk Southern locomotives.  There's something about the logo and paint scheme that really appeal to me.

For some old-school reference, check out a NS unit that was traveling up here in the New England area a month or so ago:

I saw the same units when I went to Railfest last month.

I love a good high nose diesel. These would be great to model. There's not enough NS equipment out there.

Speaking of Norfolk Southern Heritage Units it looks like they're going to painting a few with predecessor roadnames like Union Pacific did a few years ago.

There will be plenty of modeling opportunities in these. Now that I think about it Scott Wardlow has been quiet lately. Wonder if he's up to something. smiley
