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

CR GP7 Conrail inherited their vast fleet of GP7's from the Jersey Central, Erie Lackawanna, Penn Central, and Reading Company. The EL and PC inherited their units from their respective predecessors. As a result, there was quite a variety among the class. In the 1970s Conrail began rebuilding their GP7's into improved GP8's.

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.
