Remarks & Notes 
Local lore in the Allentown area said that Conrail’s ex-Lehigh & Hudson River C420’s were intended to be run until they had problems, and would then be retired. They were also not to be repainted. Nonetheless, one rolled out of the Bethlehem roundhouse with a coat of Conrail blue paint. An unsubstantiated story says that the unknown responsible employee was called on the carpet for this infraction. It was still a neat sight to see, as the original L&HR paint was dirty and worn. Here the unit with the unauthorized rebranding stands with an unrepainted sister in the Bethlehem servicinge area.

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