The majority of the U-25B's made it into Conrail, including the New
Haven ones.  Actually, a lot of former road power made it into Conrail,
but did not necessarily last once Conrail started to thin things out. 
Seems as most of the U-25B's started dying off in the early 80's, along
with most of the older 2nd generation power.
