Railfan Pictures of the Day - 09/21/2006

Conrail Abrams Yard Upper Merion PA September 1994

Conrail X58 box car 362259. Interesting note: the PRR heritage number is in an unusual spot, on the top sill just above the IL in CONRAIL.

Conrail X63 box car 219949 with newish paint, CONRAIL QUALITY markings and PC heritage number, as it was built new for Penn Central at the former PRR Samual Rea car shops. Unlike heritage numbers from other railroads such as Pennsylvania, Reading, et. al., the Conrail numbers are frequently the same as the Penn Central numbers.
Conrail X56 box car 270305 with no heritage number, although it is of PRR heritage.
Conrail X65 box car 266556 with PC heritage number
Conrail X62 box car 274898 with PC heritage number
