A pair of CR SD50's
Title:  A pair of CR SD50's
Description:  Nice pair of new SD50's ordered by Conrail to offset the need for modern power after retiring many of their inherited locos. CR conductor Ken Taylor snapped this shot of the pair as they sat in the Conway yard. The date given for this view was May of 1984 but from the barren trees, it looks like closer to March or April of 1984.

Buy US Savings Bonds
Title:  Buy US Savings Bonds
Description:  Conrail had a couple of units painted to encourage purchase of US Savings Bonds. One of them leads ML 440 as seen from the overpass at Hunt, just east of the Portage Bridge. The signal alongside the train was a semaphore til a couple of years earlier; up til then there were a pair of them here. When track 2 was lifted, the signal was replaced with a Type G cluster signal. The roadbed of former track 2 has been graded and ballasted to make a maintenance road.
