Remarks & Notes 
8098 isn't the only Norfolk Southern locomotive painted in Conrail paint! Nicknamed "The Bug" by Enola Yard's crews, this homebuilt locomotive shuttle was constructed by Conrail to move power around the wheel shop, freeing up full locomotives for more valuable work. Constructed from an old EMD Blomberg B truck and traction motor, this diminutive curiosity is now owned by Norfolk Southern. Note that this even has a beacon on the roof and an "F" on the frame to indicate the front! Photographed on railroad property with permission and full PPE.
