The Conrail Cyclopedia - Serving Conrail fans world-wide since 1998.

CR C-430 Conrail inherited a total of 2 C-430's from the Reading Company and 10 from the Penn Central, which were former New York Central units. They were assigned to series CR 2048-2059.

These repaint rosters are my attempt to discover how long a predecessor ran in its original paint scheme and when Conrail painted it blue for the first time. All dates listed are the earliest and latest the unit was seen in that paint scheme. Dates often change as new photos are examined. If I know for certain that a date is the absolute earliest or latest, then I mention this in the notes. This is a constant work in progress aimed at helping those of us who model the transition era get our consists looking reasonably accurate for blue, stenciled, and original paint scheme ratios.
