Remarks & Notes 
In the early days of Conrail, all of the six-axle Alco Centuries were based in Ohio for heavy drag freight service, and the epicenter was Mingo Junction. A long weekend visit yielded less of the big Centuries than I had hoped for, but some did get in and out of the engine terminal when we weren’t looking. Here a GP38 rolls out onto the turntable to go to work on a local while four high-horsepower six-axle units await their call. Two 3000 horsepower C630’s are joined by two 3600 horsepower units – an SD45 and C636.
