MP15DC In 1974, the Reading Company began leasing 10 MP15DC's from EMD and were passed onto Conrail in 1976. While my experiences with the class proved them to be excellent, reliable locomotives that were a joy to run, Conrail decided to return al 10 MP15's to EMD at the end of the lease in 1989.

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.
