Re: PC: Re: PC/TPW power pool

Dear List Members,

Of all the ConRail predecessors, didn't only the Lehigh Valley(LV)  

have the GP-38AC?  I believe that the LV GP-38ACs had the extended cab 

front wall.  Unfortunately, I don't have the Conrail Motive Power 

Review by Paul Withers, or Conrail, volume 1 or 2, by Scott Hartly on                                                                       
me.  Ditto for the Conrail Motive Power Review by Louis Marre, which

may also prove useful.  Thank you.
