PC: Re: Conrail's Final Hour

         Hey all you Penn Central guys,

             It's the final hour of our beloved Conrail.
      It has been coined the "Blue" Penn Central,
      and the "Big Blue". We will always remember Conrail coming out of
the ashes of the Penn Central and all the other bankrupt northeastern
railroads back in 1976. In the beginning, Conrail had struggled
financially but soon became a strong profitle railroad. 

            Although many cars were painted into the Conrail scheme,
Conrail still gave us a variety of cars still in their original paint
schemes with the likes of PC, EL, RDG and PRR up to now. Although the
cars painted NYC, B&A, PCA, PCB, ERIE and others have since vanished
into Conrail re-paints.

           Conrail held it's own over the last 23 years, now it's time
to say goodbye to an old friend. 

            We'll miss you CONRAIL!!!!!


     CONRAIL is now  "un-CONRAIL" or
