(I am only posting photos from 2012 or 2013..anything older than that, and we cant be sure its still in CR blue today.
technically we cant be sure from even a month ago! ;) but 2012 and 2013 photos make it fairly likely the unit is still in blue)

A contender for the oldest unit still in CR blue, Winchester and Western Railroad GP10 No. 752,
built in 1956 as NYC GP9 5972.

From what I found WAMX has a bunch of former Conrail units all of them are a mix of former PC / PRR / RDG / EL and they got 1 LV unit Ex 108 are still active and move between Oklahoma and Kansas.

ex DLW, EL, CR gp 9 (if i remember right) was posted in FB, passing through horseshoe few days ago.. I believe that it's heading for .... steamtown or somewhere to be restored into DLW...

I dont know where it came from. it's still in CR blue. No one answered to my Q about where it came from.
