NS 5053 and 5054 were rebuilt by NS in 2008 with a new EMD style replacement cab and low short hood,
air conditioning and an electric parking brake were added, the control stand was relocated for short hood
forward operation, and the units were completely overhauled and rewired.

NS 5053 was again rebuilt in 2014/2015 to operate on CNG (Compressed Natural Gas). A CNG conversion
system from Energy Conversions Inc. was installed on the locomotive.  Additionally, the cab and low short hood
were again replaced, this time with the NS-designed "admiral" cab and low short hood, which meet increased 
crashworthiness standards. The original diesel fuel tank was ballasted for additional weight and plugged. A new
custom battery box was mounted to the front of the old fuel tank. An electric parking brake, SmartStart auto start/stop
system, cab air conditioning, HOTSTART plug-in engine heating system, and NS LEADER/PTC equipment were
installed. The 5053 is designed to be mated to and operate with NS RP-E4C Slug/CNG Tender
799.
This unit was finally released from Altoona and shipped to Southwest Research Institute for testing 11/2015.

Units rebuilt with NS-designed "Admiral" cab and low short hood:
5053, 5062, 5070, 5073, 5074, 5079, 5095, 5101, 5113, 5125, 5132,
