Elkhart, Indiana, is home to the National New York Central Railroad Museum. Among its collection of equipment is NYC E8 4085 and NYC “Mohawk” steam locomotive 3001. During this year’s Penn Central Railroad Historical Society Convention, Norfolk Southern added some “heritage” to the festivities in the form of NYC SD70ACe 1066, PRR ES44AC 8102, and PC SD70ACe 1073.

Covering 620 acres and stretching more than 5.5 miles long, Norfolk
Southern’s Bellevue Yard will be the largest and most modern classification facility on the NS system and one of the biggest in the United States. The $160 million project to increase capacity at the terminal included construction of 38 new tracks. The expansion, which nearly doubles Bellevue’s yard capability, also is expected to increase operating efficiency across the entire NS network. To learn more: http://bit.ly/1syrnSJ

Nickel Plate Road F7 number 83 leads a “Hoosierland” excursion train across the White River in Noblesville, Indiana, along the Indiana Transportation Museum’s former NKP mainline. While the Nickel Plate never actually had any F-units, they did test EMD demo F7’s 800 and 801 during May 1949, and they were painted in this scheme, minus the NKP lettering. If they had acquired an order of F-units, this most likely would have been a daily sight along Nickel Plate rails.  Visit http://itm.org/ for more info on the Museum and its excursion trains.

Last year, our Central Division challenged employees and their guests to join the NS PowerTrain team and enter the Susan G. Komen Race for the cure 5K. Their challenge included reaching a goal of 40 participants, of which several would be randomly chosen as winners to have the opportunity to toss a pie at their boss. Well, there were 72 participants who signed up and today was the day for the pie toss! Thanks to everyone involved who helped to raise over $4,000 and also for the willing recipients of the pie in the face. Let’s help DERAIL BREAST CANCER!!!
