Westbound light engine move ENG136 led by CR 6566 passing a sign that reads "CR 'heart's' SAFETY" at mile 49.8 in Auburn, MA. on April 16, 1988. A larger version of the sign follows below. Seemed strange to stick something like this out in the middle of nowhere...

This was the car inspectors tool car that was kept inside the Chrysler Twinsburg Stamping plant. Back in the day this facility released over 40 cars a day, so there were car inspectors stationed around the clock with this "tool pug" used to travel around the massive stamping plant. As 2009 draws to a close this Conrail homemade machine rests inside the Mac shop at Macedonia, Ohio due to Chrysler Twinsburg shutting down, and is slated to be scrapped.

Former CR GP38-2 8083 (now NS 5284) keeps watch over the Conrail Private Property and Conrail Employees Only signs that mark the entrance to the Morrisville yard office on May 10, 2014.
