Surviving SD70s

Conrail placed additional orders for SD80MACs, however due to the pending takeover by Norfolk Southern and CSX the order was changed. Norfolk Southern, not wanting to take the plunge into AC power, changed the order to standard cab SD70's built to NS specification. The 4,000hp locomotives were numbered 2557 - 2580, in sequence with NS' own SD70's. They were assembled and painted at the Juniata Locomotive Shop between July and October 1998 in traditional Conrail paint.

In 1999, the entire fleet became the property of Norfolk Southern and retained the 2557 - 2580 series.
