Re: PC: LV/tandem control stands

Lehigh Valley had 4 GP38AC's which are all in service and slated to go to
they were basic models with the only real options being dynamic brakes. 
They did not have a tandem control stand - the only units to have this were
a few PC 38's for specific services, a number of PR-SL GP38's and the 5 RDG
SD45's.  (Anyone know why these SD45's had that feature?)  These are the
only GP38AC's on Conrail and are lumped in with the other GP38's as
7656-7659 despite being internally more or less a dash-2.

The LV also had 12 GP38-2's which are now CP rail property (with the
excetion of 2 lost to wrecks) after going to the D&H on C-day.

hmm, if they called the start of Conrail "C-day" is the end of Conrail
