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

Time of Transition 1994 was a year of transition for Conrail, which had been on a major motive power buying spree while retiring the last of its aging locomotives. Though 35 GP40's were on roster as of May 10, within several months only one GP40 (CR 3274) would remain active. Several weeks after May 1994, the last GP35's would also leave Conrail's roster forever. The same would happen to the remaining two GP30's. Other locomotive models that would leave the roster later in 1994 include all remaining SW9's, SW1200's, and SW900's (with the exception of CR 8946 SW900).

One of the models responsible for clearing out much of Conrail's roster was GE's C40-8W. In August 1993, Conrail's third order of the model had arrived on property, replacing many aging SD40's. In June 1994, the fourth and final order of the C40-8W's would arrive, killing off the remaining SD40s, which Conrail would sell off or return to EMD, which in turn put them into their own leasing company or further sold them off to leasing arms such as Helm. In October 1994, Conrail's own LMS leasing arm began with the arrival of the first LMS C40-8W's in the 700-739 series. Finally, in December 1994 the first SD60I's rolled out of Juniata and onto the roster.

So as you can see, this 1994 roster represents the practical end of an era for Conrail. It was the last time several models would remain on roster as the railroad transitioned into its final years of operation.

The roster below lists units that were on roster as of the roster's original effective date. Because a unit is listed in the roster does not mean that it was in active service, just that Conrail still considered it active and available. For detailed roster information about a particular unit, such as built date, see the unit's respective prototype page.

 Roster Notes:
  1. 700-739 were assigned to and painted for Conrail's LMS leasing.
  2. Beginning in the summer of 1997, Conrail began moving 740-759 from their lease fleet into regular service. As the units were moved, they were renumbered into series CR 6266-6285. These units had never had the LMS logo applied.
  3. With the arrival in June 1994 of series CR 6230-6265 C40-8W, Conrail sold off or returned to EMD the SD40's in series 6241-6357. The C40-8W's took those numbers.
  4. CR 6700-6804 built with Flexicoil trucks.
