RS-1

RS-27
  Conrail inherited their small fleet of RS-27's from Penn Central, placing them in series CR 2400-2414. They look like a cross between a Century class and an RS class locomotive.

RSD-15
  Conrail either converted their RSD-15's into MT-6 slugs between 1978 and 1979 or scrapped them early on because they were unreliable, oddball locomotives.

S-4
  Built between 1950 and 1961, ALCo's S-4 differs from the S-2 only in the trucks, with the S-2 using ALCo's own Blunt trucks and the S-4 using standard AAR type A switcher trucks.
