A bout 30-40 of the GP38's and GP 40's were sold to various other lines while the rest were canabalized by CSX and NS, a couple have the new KCS paint job but the CONRAIL paint is bleeding thru 2 of them. As if to say CONRAIL JUST WON'T DIE!

Hey Railfan 1. I thought that you could use some help because this is a big undertaking. I am compiling a list of the new numbers and companies for a bunch of old Conrail locos. I will post it on here in a few days.( Probably Friday) Then I will go searching for more.
