Penn Central GP38 road switchers were turned over to Conrail and became part of the CR 7600-7939 series. The impressive fleet could be found almost anywhere, from yard and local duty to hauling mainline freights. 270 of them were built new for the Penn Central in the late 1960's and early 70's. Big blue inherited 4 GP38AC's from the Lehigh Valley (LV 310 - 313), along with 15 straight GP38's from the Pennsylvania-Reading Seashore Lines (PRSL 2000 - 2014)
