Another Conrail Train in Alliance

November 23, 2020

Conrail GP40-2 No. 3400 is on the point of an eastbound intermodal train near Alliance on June 12, 1980. The unit despite its road dirt is still new having been built four months earlier. It would later go to join the Norfolk Southern motive power roster with roster number 3068.

Railroading as It Once Was: Legit Tagging

December 28, 2016


Here is some legit tagging from May 1978. In 1975 Clipper Express let the West Town Community Youth Art Center of Chicago paint one of its TOFC trailers. There were several other Clipper Express trailers painted with various themes, too. This unit was on Conrail TV 98 eastbound on the former Erie Lackawanna in Akron.
