At the Juniata locomotive shop in Altoona, Pa., Norfolk Southern regularly recycles locomotives into more efficient machines, benefiting both customers and the environment. NS can strip a locomotive down to the bare frame and completely rebuild it, including the engine, alternator, wiring, cab, trucks, combos and running gear—all in 6.5 days. 

NS also operates its own indoor locomotive emissions-testing facility, unique among railroads. This facility allows NS to test locomotives year-round to increase fuel efficiency and meet EPA regulations.
