I just read in Classic Trains Summer 2009 that the NYC loned CUT 5900 amongst other Geeps to assist P&E with the Indy 500 specials. In the text to the lower pictures on page 56 it says "...and GP9 5900(right), still lettered for its home base, Cleveland Union Terminal" but i can't find any other pictures of 5900. Only in its next life as Conrail 7300.

Does anyone know where i can find pics of it?
