The 'single-stripe' scheme was the one of the final schemes the LV applied to its fleet of sitchers and road switchers, such as 214 here in this photo, which was taken several months after the Conrail merger.

Former LV 218. If you look at the top of the forward hood, you will notice that the crews forgot to paint-out the old "218." It's those little details I love spotting on paint-outs. See below for photos of 5203 as LV 218.

Unfortunately, only four of the LV RS-2's survived onto Conrail, LV 213-214 and LV 217-218. I do have photos of 216, which wore the big yellow yellow stripe down the middle. LV 218 was originally C&O 5501. The C&O it and its sister unit, C&O 5500, to the Lehigh Valley in 1950 after only a year of service on that road.
