Are you starting to get the feeling that all of Conrail's SD60M's looked alike? I thought you were. That's what I eventually stopped shooting them. I kept seeing the same units and no variations. Unfortunately, NS and CSX split up the fleet before the units could see enough service to begin to wear out, thereby creating some variations.

These were taken during one of those times when the CR boys were a little "disgrunteled", trains backed up all over the place. We are at CP 140 in Hinsdale and westbound SPSE has just arrived, led by SD60I 5555. He had to stop for a red board at the CP because there was a "dead" ML-433 sitting ahead of him down in Pittsfield just east of CP 147. An SEFR, which has just been recrewed itself, is on it's way up the west slope on the other track, so SPSE has to wait for him to clear.
