Remarks & Notes 
NS 6601 is seen on Track 27 at the Juniata Shops in the beginning stages of transition to an SD60E. An NS employee empties out the sandbox on this SD60, to prepare the rest of the nose and cab for the torch. This locomotive will be completely disassembled to the bare frame and then will be rebuilt into a practically new locomotive at a fraction of the cost of a entirely new one from EMD or GE.

Pictures of things often unseen in the world of railroading. Interesting equipment, operations, and people that help the railroad go around.

Once the main shops of the mighty Pennsylvania RR, and now the main facility of modern Norfolk Southern, the Juniata Shops have been turning out some of the best locomotives and rebuilds for over 100 years.
