During the early years of Conrail, we could see any manner of odd locomotives. Here we see a former-Pennsylvania / forme-Penn Central 6000 with its original PRR keystones visable. Experience taught me that this usually happened when someone decided to take paint thinner to the locomotive. Just proves that the Penn Central did not like stripping their locomotives before repainting. A cold and snowy day for the crew of this train!

Mike was wise enough to shoot a close-up of the conductor's cab, showing the keystones.

A battered former-PC locomotive with CR stencils. Like many PC engines that retained their PC numbering onto the CR roster, this unit still carries its cab number untouched. Note the white rectangle where the ACI tracking label used to be.

Between the end of May 1965 and early June 1965, the Central Railroad of New Jersey traded in their F3A's (CNJ 4046-4055) and F3B's (CNJ 4056-4060) for a new order of SD35's, which eventually became CR 6040-6051. This unit survived into Conrail as CR 6043.
