    Locomotive shells, their probably on their way to get new cabs & equipment. NS has been doing a lot of locomotive rebuilds lately.

    You are looking at two SD70's, NS SD70's 2527 and 2554, who have been 'stripped down' of parts and then shipped to Progress Rail in Mayfield, Kentucky to be rebuilt into SD70ACC's.

    Thanks.... I was a bit confused as the numbers already seemed to exist...

    Methinks locomotives are quite often re-numbered, with or without notice. The railfan magazine Railfan and Railroad, if it's still published, used to list changes and re-numbers in each issue.

    Yes... There are a large number of websites that track all this. I didn't know if the SD70 "shells" where the old units or something that would be "officially" renumbered when completed. Here is one site where I would have found the answer to my own question as Jordon412 answered:
