Not much difference
Title:  Not much difference
Description:  At this point in Conrails history, there was still a lot of equipment in predecessor paint schemes, and it was not uncommon to see solid sets of un repainted power, though most non PC units had at least been renumbered if not patch painted. Since the PC people largely ran the show, their numbering plan held sway. As such, most PC power did not need to be renumbered, so you were more likely to see untouched PC power than anything else. An example is here at Poughkeepsie, where we have not only this U25B, but a transfer caboose still in PC garb. There's also something in NYC lettering in the yard, though I can't see enough of it to identify. All this is in the shadow of the now out of service Poughkeepsie Bridge.

Ancient power
Title:  Ancient power
Description:  A Washington Terminal RS 1 works at Union Station, as it has for years. At the time, besides Amtrak, there were commuter trains on the B&O and ex Pennsy lines. The Southern had turned over the Crescent to Amtrak about 18 months earlier, and was no longer a participant.

Busy place
Title:  Busy place
Description:  Amtrak 763 pushes the Southwest Chief into the station, as a Conrail SW works the Post Office. The SDP40Fs were common power on western trains, though they were being steadily replaced by F 40s. The SDP40Fs had problems on a couple of western roads, most notably SP, for tracking issues and derailments. The Santa Fe didnt seem to have these problems, however, and did not restrict them. ATSF had experience with this type power, as it had FP 45s on its passenger trains, and seemed to know how to run them without incident.

Going under
Title:  Going under
Description:  One of Amtraks French design turbos rolls under Roosevelt Rd as it gets underway from Union Station on its way to St Louis. These trains were dedicated to the midwest, the trains in Empire Service in NY being of a different origin.

Es into the night
Title:  Es into the night
Description:  I rode the Broadway to Chicago in 1978. At the time, it was still on its traditional route from New York to Harrisburg via Zoo Tower in Philly, changing engines at Harrisburg. We had just completed the engine change, the Es now coupled up in place of GG 1 4932 which had brought the train in from New York. Now it was off into the Allegheny darkness as we tackled Horseshoe Curve and the moutain railroad that the ex Pennsy still was. We rounded Horseshoe around 2330, and got into Pitt around 0330. I was amazed at how much traffic there was on that line, everything from coal-lots of it-to general freight, to intermodal. Even in the chaos of Conrail start up, it was an amazing piece of railroading.

Lake Shore
Title:  Lake Shore
Description:  A three hour late Lake Shore Limited rolls into the Albany Renssalaer station behind an SDP40F/E 9B combination. I lived in NY City, which was electrified territory, and mostly saw FL 9s and electric motors, with an occasional E unit if I got to Harmon. The SDP40F was a treat, and this was the first one I had seen. The power was pulled here, probably so it could be serviced and sent back west. I dont recall what the train got-I think Es, though it could have been FL 9s, which sometimes ran to Albany.

Stone in winter
Title:  Stone in winter
Description:  Track maintenance was a full time job on the Corridor, due to the constant pounding the track structure got on this high density railroad. Thus, we have a ballast train in action in December. It is on the run around track at Penn Station, waiting for a shot at the main track.
