Detroit Terminal Railroad joined Conrail on October 1, 1981. They owned several NW2's and one SW7. Conrail renumbered the NW2's 9195-9199 and 9297-9300. The SW7 was renumbered 8835. Detroit Terminal NW2 104 awaits its new number after becoming property of Conrail.

This unit did not escape the paint-out brush for long when this photo was snapped at the roundhouse. Still, the crews did a careful job not to disturb too much of the paint. It was very difficult for many paint-crews to "destroy" their own locos with CR stencils. LV crews seem to have been the best at using the least amount of paint to block out their logos!
