Remarks & Notes 
Drab Power on a Dreary Day

The day after Conrail’s first anniversary finds a GP30/GP9/GP39 power set in a mix of patched and unpatched Penn Central colors (colors?) approaching Allentown Yard from Reading, Pennsylvania in the rain.. This lash up ir reminiscent of the last days of Penn Central’s Bel-Del Subdivision, which frequently saw GP30/GP9B/GP30 combinations on its trains. 366 days earlier, a Reading GP30/GP35/GP30 combination would have been a likely consist on a train coming over this bridge.
