Norfolk Southern Executive Train Power.

Three Pennsylvania RR F3s purchased on a closeout sale and repainted/redecorated as NS.  I read somewhere(?) that Norfolk Southern Shops re-engineered the real Engines from freight for passenger running speed, and installed steam generators. Perhaps someone has better info.

Good evening, this a Pennsy M1A waiting for the commuter train to pass on the outer track crossing over to the inner track on a cold morning.

Wanted to throw that in there before someone notice that the points on the switch is position in the diverging direction.

Have a good evening !!!!!
