Norfolk Southern honored its predecessor railroads during its 30th anniversary in 2012, by painting 20 new locomotives in commemorative authentic schemes of those particular railroads.With the designs created by Andrew Fletcher, Norfolk Southern employees in Altoona, Pennsylvania and Chattanooga, Tennessee painted the GE ES44AC locomotives, while the EMD SD-70ACe units were painted at Progress Rail Services' facility in Muncie, Indiana. The heritage locomotives are now hauling freight across Norfolk Southern's 20,000-mile, 22-state network and beyond.
