Ever wonder how a train's locomotive is painted?

Norfolk Southern created a  "Veterans Locomotive" for its freight system to honour people who have served in the military and reserves. 

The job took 26 NS employees, using 250 litres of primer and paint over a 112-hour period. 

This time lapse video of the Juniata Paint Shop in Altoona, Pa., show how they created the Veterans Locomotive.
