Page 15 - NS RP-M4C Slugs - NS 623
NS 623 was well along in the assembly process
While the first five RP-M4C Slug
units were built on the frames of retired NS EMD GP50 locomotives, since
then NS has been purchasing new frames from Curry Rail Services.
The slugs are then assembled using
a variety of components. A new
NS-designed "admiral" cab and low short hood are used, which
purchased from Curry Rail Services. NS has also purchased long hood
carbody sections for the slugs
from locomotive salvage dealers. The long hood carbody section of
NS 623 was acquired from National
Railway Equipment and was from retired Missouri & Valley Park EMD SD40-2 3080.
Note: In the photo below,
NS SD70ACU 7314 can be seen next to the 623 alongside the
Cleaning Shed. Although it had been painted, the unit was not yet
