Happy Birthday Conrail

Somehow it got by all of us that this month marks the 45th anniversary of the Consolidated Rail Corporation beginning operations.

So to mark the occasion we set the wayback machine dial to the Conrail era.

It’s Aug. 15, 1984, in Alliance. SD50 No. 6742 is leading a train toward Pittsburgh via the Cleveland Line line through Bayard, Ohio.

Nearby is a set of helper locomotives sitting in the yard, GP38-2 Nos. 8132 and CR 8126.
