Scot, If you were wondering about that GP-38 that doesn't match up with the rest of the numbers (PC 2013) that was built as an order of 5 units for the Pennsylvania-Reading seashore lines, but was delivered to PC.

Was the PRR Madison Hill unit an SD7 or SD9? I'm pretty sure that unit, rebuilt with a chopnose, is on TRRA (St. Louis), in their red paint scheme.

As for the PRR SD9's..they were all retired and sold for scrap around January, 1983

I think I remember reading that PRR had two SD-7 for Madison Hill: ballasted, dynamic brake equipped, but NOT m.u. fitted, so when both were needed on a heavy movement (I think I vaguely recall something like a generator on an umpty-ump axle flat) they had to be double headed: crews on boh units.
But it's a vague memory.

That's correct PRR had 2 SD-7's for madison hill (Indiana) One of these SD's are still around, scottychaos mentioned it above.
