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

CR SD40 By the time Conrail was created in 1976, production on the SD40 had been replaced with the upgraded Dash 2 series. As a result, Conrail inherited its entire SD40 fleet from the Central Railroad of New Jersey and the Penn Central. The CNJ units came from the Baltimore & Ohio, whereas the PC units came from the Penn Central.

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.
