Norfolk Southern, always in the market for secondhand EMD power, acquired the three former NYS&W SD70Ms in late 2014. The new Thoroughbreds received a fresh coat of black and were renumbered 2797-2799. Since then, NS 2798 has been fitted with rooftop PTC antennas, a distinctive detail captured by our Genesis model.
