GE U25C demo on the Lehigh Valley

Post by obsessed railfan » Fri Dec 08, 2017 2:30 pm

I've seen a reference to a GE U25C demonstrator that operated on the LV in May 1965. Does anyone know about this event, which unit was demonstrated and for how long/along which lines? Not being aware of any GE U25C demonstrators, I'm going to assume this was possibly a parent PRR U25C that they sent to the LV for evaluation, correct? Thanks for any info.

Here's a link to a thread at railfan.net, you are correct -- it was in May 1965 and it was PRR U25C's.
