Remarks & Notes
Six months into Conrail’s existence, I’m sure that I took this photo to record the former Erie-Lackawanna U33C in Conrail blue, still a rarity at that time. Almost exactly forty-one years later, the more interesting subjects are the 6567’s supporting cast, including an NW2, two SW8’s and an SW1 from the Lehigh Valley, and Ironton 751, by then the only active Baldwin on Conrail’s roster.
