Remarks & Notes 
Built in 1955, the New Haven’s ten class EP5 electrics were delivered in an eye-catching orange, black, and white paint scheme that immediately inspired Lionel and American toy replicas. When the New Haven was folded into the Penn Central, the eight remaining double-ended GE’s were renumbered and reclassified as E40. In 1977, they were retired by Conrail and placed in storage in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. Here two of them wait for an appointment with the scrappers torch.
