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

E33
  The Virginian originally ordered the E33's, but Norfolk & Western stopped all electric operations when they purchased the VGN. N&W sold the units to the New Haven, which is how Conrail acquired them.

E40
  In 1956, GE built ten EP-5 passenger locos for New Haven. The units had two pantographs collecting 10,000v AC, which an Ignitron rectifier converted to DC, a small roof pantaograph, and a 600v DC 3rd-rail shoe. Penn Central reclassed EP-5's as E-40's. Most EP-40's were mothballed in Harrisburg on April 1, 1976, and then retired in 1977.

E44
  Conrail inherited their E44's from Penn Central, which inherited them from the Pennsylvania Railroad. E44's were numbered CR 4400-4437 & 4460-4465, wherease the E44A's were numbered CR 4438-4459.

GG1
  In 1935, industrial designer Raymond Loewy gave the GG1 its famous style-lines. PRR assigned GG1's to 4800-4938, which PC and CR retained. While associated with passenger service on the Northeast Corridor and the Philadelphia-Harrisburg mainline, the GG1 also hauled freight. Conrail retired most GG1's in 1979, but several lingered on for at least another year.

E10B
  Conrail inherited the E10B from Niagra Junction. In December 1980, Conrail overhauled 4750, 4752, and 4753, fitting them with a smaller pantograph and 3-rail shoes, painting them black with the MTA logo, and then assigning them to Harmon, replacing the aging S2E's. CR stored then disposed 4751, 4754, and 4755.

S2E
  The S2E's were some of the oldest, if not oldest, locomotives on Conrail's roster. They served in the New York area and were never renumbered.
