Norfolk Southern Juniata Locomotive Shop - Photo Tour

Photos taken at Employee Appreciation Day event 09/05/2016

Photo Page 17 - NS RP-M4C Slugs - NS 625 undergoing assembly


NS 625 was being assembled in the Smith Shop

This slug is in the early stages of assembly.  The large steel box that has been attached to the top of
the frame will be filled with concrete for additional weight, since the slug does not have an engine or
generator.  The fuel tank under the frame has been sealed and is also ballasted for additional weight.
The total weight of a finished RP-M4C Slug is 268,000 pounds.
