A new addition to Norfolk Southern’s “heritage fleet”. Southern Railway SD40 #3170 was built in April of 1971 and served for Southern and
Norfolk Southern until being retired in 2008. It was recently saved from
the back lot and rebuilt into operating condition at NS’s Juniata Shop
in Altoona, Pennsylvania, and repainted into its original Southern
colors at NS’s paint shop at Debutts Yard in Chattanooga, Tennessee.
3170 will go back into revenue service, primarily assigned to yard and
local service along the Piedmont Division.
