Conrail's GP-40's came from Penn Central where they were assigned CR series 3000-3274. By 1995, Conrail retired and sold off all their GP-40's except one (CR 3264).

The "class unit" of ConRail's GP40 fleet, the 3000. Not the first GP40 as some might believe. That distinction belonged to CR 3036. And, IIRC, this is the only time I ever got the 3000, this close, at least.
