SD40  6040-6104 (former PRR with same number, 6100/6101 were control & slave)
      6240-6274 (New 12/70-12/71)
SD45  6105-6234 (former PRR with same number)
      6235-6239 (New 8/68)

Most 1973 pictures seem to have text under the number, but is seems to short 
for most terminal names (they can't all have been at Enola).  I can't make it 
out for sure, but it looks like it says SD40 or SD45.

If you need specific number that were known to exists in 1973, I can pick out 
pictures, but I expect most survived until Conrail.

No mention of SD40-2.  -2 stated coming out in May 1972, but I only see 
GP38-2's on the roster.
