Conrail inherited some pretty interesting equipment from the predecessor roads, including this 50 ft "Share in Freedom" savings bond car off the Reading. There were 4 in this scheme, RDG 19805-19808. These would be as close to a Bicentennial paint scheme as any Reading equipment would get, strange for a road that served Philadelphia in a big way. Not the best shot in the world, but it would be the only time I had a chance to see one of these.

 

Car would become 231456 when finally renumbered.
