In October 1979, Conrail began renumbering their C-425's into the 5060-5088 series. This C-425 CR 5070 is probably near the end of the line, as it sits at Youngstown, OH. Note the unusual numbering font used when this unit was renumbered from a previous CR number, of which I do not now. Dan Halpert collection.
