CR 5831
Title:  CR 5831
Description:  So what's the big deal? It's not even an action shot, just a boring no-thought 3/4 roster view of a Conrail Geep. Yes, but. This was one of the very first blue repaints, and would seem to have been an unlikely candidate, being former Reading GP7 629. Spotted and shot in the unlikely location of the former T&OC yard in Bucyrus. Date approximate from slide mount (likely shot in early to mid-August, '76).
