Re: PC: Run through power



A couple of GP40's ended up with a group of units Conrail let the leases
expire on, that sat in Sayre PA (in the LV yard) for a few years - mostly
ex-NYC U30B's with U28 style carbodies.  One of them was still in NYC paint
with white sill stripe, with a CR patch job over a PC patch job over the NYC
lettering.  (#3071?) ..   Believe these sat there between about 1983 and
1985 -
