Norfolk Southern
CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. – Norfolk Southern unveiled the latest addition to its heritage fleet on Wednesday with a blast from the past.

The railroad recently repainted SD45-2 No. 1700 into its original Erie Lackawanna colors at the railroad’s Chattanooga shops. The locomotive was the first locomotive of 13 ordered by the predecessor railroad.

According to a Norfolk Southern news release, the locomotive recently received cab upgrades at its East End Shops in Roanoke and was then restored to its original yellow, red, and grey Erie Lackawanna colors in Chattanooga.

The locomotive will enter revenue service, joining the fleet of five additional 1700-series locomotives presently assigned to the Conrail Share Assets region in Oak Island, N.J.
