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

During the early 1980s the surviving U33C's were renumbered into the 6800 series, which Conrail had originally assigned to RSD12s, in order to make room for new C30-7A's. 6845 sits in the scrap line at Selkirk. Parts have already been salvaged from the unit.

You can see how Conrail simply changed the second digit from a '5' to an '8'.

Conrail used this former Erie Lackawanna locomotive (EL 3310) in pusher service. Note the Adirondack trucks. The unit is sitting next to the Deposit station.

Kevin says that all EL U33C's were numbered 3301-3315, and were delivered in two groups. 3301-3306 were built in 1968, and were delivered with the nose emblem in reverse paint, similar to a photo negtive. It was GE's screw-up. Unfortunately, this is not one of those locos.
