Northfolk Sourthern Converted DC to AC engines (foobie)

This craze of doing all of the NS specail locomotives needs to stop, this is getting costly

Although for this run from Nscale Enthusiast the paint scheme is being applied to the ES44AC (FVM version?) The Prototype is the Dash-9 series, but no one makes a prototypical correct NS version (with high headlight)

Except that it is a "mane" not a "flame". 

Hate that NS 4001 has already met its fate... the derailment damage is so bad I suspect that there really isn't all that much that can be salvaged above the trucks...

Except they look nothing like a GEVO.

Meanwhile the C44-9W, the most common loco on NS by 2-3x remains elusive!   :facepalm:

That website is broken... Well according to your last link anyway.
I had a good laugh anyway.

Science isn't about why, it's about why not. Why is so much of our science dangerous? Why not marry safe science if you love it so much? In fact, why not invent a special safety door that won't hit you in the butt on the way out, because you are fired! Not you, test subject, you're doing fine.
