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

CR SD45 Conrail inherited their fleet of 174 SD45's from Penn Central (who inherited them from the Pennsylvania Railroad), Reading Company, and Erie Lackawanna. Conrail placed these units in the series CR 6066-6239. Since they were maintenance headaches and cost-inefficient, the SD45's were eventually replaced with SD40-2'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.
