Conrail owned 60 of this 3,000 horsepower dynamic brake equipped model from GE. All were of New York Central heritage and Penn Central ownership and were built between December of 1966 and December of 1967. The last of the fleet was retired in 1983 and while a number of units were scrapped, several managed to escape to serve on various shortlines, some of which may still exist.
