Remarks & Notes 
In 1983, Conrail CEO L. Stanley Crane had the Conrail business train repainted from Conrail blue to a less-gaudy Pullman green. The train, based in Reading, was painted elsewhere, most likely Altoona. Here, a newly repainted car 20 is being moved around the Reading yard by an ex-Reading SW900. The modified hopper beyond the switcher was used for clearing the various tunnels around the Reading system of icicles.

Railroading in the 40s, 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s, basically anything but the 2000s.
