Norfolk Southern Places 500+ Locomotives Into LONG-TERM STORAGE

As part of Norfolk Southern's implementation of the Precision Scheduled Railroading operating method, NS has placed over 500 locomotives in long-term storage, including a large number of SD60 and C40-8W locomotives, which are fan favorites in the railfan community. Even newer engines, like SD70M-2s are facing storage after just 10-15 years on the road. The hope is that NS will be able to run trains more efficiently with less locomotives being used, therefore many rebuild programs have slowed down or stopped completely.
