A true survivor, the 2407 is the last Alco DL640 (RS-27) running on Conrail. Shown here at Center St in Youngstown,Ohio in August 1979 returning to Brier Hill after taking a transfer to Haselton yard. It would run right up until the 4 axle Alco purge of Thanksgiving 1979, and even get renumbered to 5099 just days prior to being deadlined. The 2052 behind it would survive to haul another day as NYS&W 3002 until it was wrecked and scrapped in 1985, the 2407 would never run again and was scrapped.
