A U36B built by GE 12/1974, builder's number 40066. Ordered, but not delivered to auto-train due to financial difficulties. Soon repainted, the locomotive became Conrail 2973.

Pictured here on the yard track at the GE plant in Erie, PA January 8, 1975.

This very rare image of the locomotive in AT paint is by Jerry Moyers, from the collection of his friend Floyd Free.


Its Blomberg trucks were replaced with AAR Type B trucks before delivery to Conrail.

Seen here at Secaucus, NJ in February 1977.

The locomotive was retired in 1991 and eventually scrapped.
