Scot, If you were wondering about that GP-38 that doesn't match up with the rest of the numbers (PC 2013) that was built as an order of 5 units for the Pennsylvania-Reading seashore lines, but was delivered to PC.

(PC 2010-2014)

As for SD-9's yes, PC had 25 SD-9's (PC 6900-6924) Also, they had 2 SD7's (PC6998-6999) I believe these were all former PRR units.

Found this shot of Conrail 9348 in storage in Altoona, PA (SW1200) looks to be ex PRR 7929

Was the PRR Madison Hill unit an SD7 or SD9? I'm pretty sure that unit, rebuilt with a chopnose, is on TRRA (St. Louis), in their red paint scheme.

I think I remember reading that PRR had two SD-7 for Madison Hill: ballasted, dynamic brake equipped, but NOT m.u. fitted, so when both were needed on a heavy movement (I think I vaguely recall something like a generator on an umpty-ump axle flat) they had to be double headed: crews on boh units.
But it's a vague memory.

Well, it looks like NYC 5955 (SOO 4200) may have been a doner for a green goat..
