Early Conrail Action in Cleveland

Cleveland was the center of the Conrail X although that was more something that was discussed later in the railroad’s history.

In 1980s Conrail was still an expansive system with routes all over the Midwest and the East.

We’re standing trackside in Cleveland on Sept. 27, 1980, and watching an eastbound manifest freight pulled by U23B No. 2703.

The trailing unit, U25B No. 2613, has yet to receive its Conrail blue.
