Norfolk Southern Locomotive Lighting
Posted by Captain_Bill12 on Saturday, February 10, 2018 9:52 PM

I have a question concerning locomotive lighting for Norfolk Southern locomotives. I am looking for pictures showing the locomotive's exterior lights at night. I want to replicate different models exterior lights starting with a ES4400DC. I have looked on RR Pictures and found no night shots. I believe the locomotives have the following lights:

  • Head light
  • Reverse light
  • Porch light front/rear
  • Ditch lights front/rear
  • Front truck lights
  • Step lights on all 4 corners

Am i correct? Websites for pictures would be extremely helpful please. 

 

Thank you,

Bill

Hi, go to Railpictures.net and search Norfolk Southern. About 63,000 pix will show up. You can search for specific model NS locomotives if you wish. You will find day and night pictures.

Try YouTube by searching NS Pittsburgh line paying attention to video shot around Altoona. I have watched many video shot at night by the Amtrak station with NS trains passing through on the mainline.

Thank you for your response but as I originally stated in my post I had no luck at that site which is why I posted here.

Give this photgraphers web site a look, he has some night pictures.

It looks like your list is right.

I think you are missing at least one small walkway light on the long hood outside the engineer's door. There may be others around the base of the long hood.
