The Reading Company ordered their C-630s in two groups. The first group, RDG 5300-5306, were ordered without the Bee Line Service logo on the side of the locomotives and came with standard trimount trucks. The second group, RDG 5307-5311, came with the Bee Line Service logo and Hi-Adhesion trucks. This is why xRDG 6753-6759 didn't have any paint-out markings on the long hood where the Bee Line would have been, as seen here on former RDG 5304, which is sitting in the dead line.

Former RDG 5305, this unit came without the Bee Line Service logo but had the standard trimount trucks. Note how the black paint had nearly worn off the Reading diamond on the cab, the Conrail above the grills where the RDG's locomotive number had been, and the general nasty shape of the engine. A true shame.

Either the paint has worn off the RDG numbers above the rear grills or the paint crews never bothered to paint them out, which seems doubtful though possible. This, of course, was former RDG 5306, the last of RDG'd first group of C-630's.

An erie shot of 6770's cab sitting outside Naporano. On a side note, the cab was for sale for a few years for $1,000, along with one from a N&W Century. It probably ended up as razor blades. The stuff they were scrapping there at the time was amazing. Lots of Rock and BN power right behind where I was standing for that photo.
