Conrail GP9B's

Postby mitch kennedy » Thu Dec 27, 2012 5:18 pm

PRR/PC GP9B's were a staple of the road jobs to Reading and P-burg as well as other secondary lines in later PC days, splicing GP30's and GP9's amongst other units. In the PRSL forum I've posted a few shots of them splicing CR Paducah GP9u's... but here is one in full CR blue in Bridgeton Jct NJ in May 77 between a PC GP35 and CNJ SD35 on freight WY379 from Pavonia...
