Built for the Erie Lackawanna as their 3316 to 3328, these thirteen 3,600 6-axle locomotives became Conrail 6587 to 6599. In November of 1979 they were renumbered to 6884 to 6896 in order to make room for more new C30-7A's. All were retired in December 1987 and returned to the lessor and are presumed scrapped.
A general freight is roaring around the curve as it assaults the grade at Horseshoe Curve. It looks like the sanders are getting a workout!
A pair of GEs fill in for the common fleet of SDs as helper units approach the Horseshoe Curve. The first unit is an ex-EL unit, while the second was a built new for Conrail C30-7A.
