The NS AC44C6M rebuilds receive a
new cab and wide nose, new front pilot and steps, new electrical, inverter,
and airbrake equipment cabinets, new battery boxes, as well as new trucks that
accept AC traction motors.
Note that the new front pilot includes five steps per side, instead of the
original four step arrangement.
The rear pilot is not replaced during
rebuilding, so it retains the original four step arrangement on each side.
All of the AC44C6M rebuilds painted by NS
have received the "DC to AC" lettering and AC wave form under
the road number on each side of the cab.
