Armed with the expertise and capabilities of its legendary Altoona (Pennsylvania) shop complex and supported by federal and state funding for development, Norfolk Southern in 2015 begin converting aged EMD GP50 diesels into like-new, highly efficient and environmental friendly GP33ECO diesels, which now come to Train Simulator!
Wearing a special, and striking, black and two-tone green livery, the Norfolk Southern GP33ECO for Train Simulator is accompanied by an unpowered RP-M4C “slug” partner.
The NS GP33ECO is a 3,000-horsepower, four-axle (B-B) locomotive powered by an EMD 12-cylinder 12N-710G3B-T3 ECO engine and equipped with an EMD EM2000 microprocessor control system. The new and innovative diesel is distinctive from front to back, built with a NS “Admiral cab” and, at the rear, flared radiators similar to those employed on EMD SD70s. The GP33ECO meets Tier 3 emission standards and is capable of radio-control operations.
Visually similar to the GP33ECO, but unpowered, the RP-M4C slug is also equipped with an Admiral cab and EMD EM2000 microprocessor control system.
Through early 2020, Norfolk Southern has placed 28 GP33ECOs and 34 RP-M4Cs in service, with the majority of the sets serving in the Chicago and Atlanta areas. More units of each type are anticipated.
