EMD GP20

Penn Central provided 13 of the ex-NYC's 15 original GP-20's to Conrail in April, 1976.  They retained their PC number series as 2100-2112.  Built between November 1959 and April 1962, the GP-20 produced 2,000hp through it's turbocharged 567D2 prime mover.

A GP 20 works on the Northeast Corridor at Wilmington Del, seen from the passing Crescent. They only had ten of these, so I consider this a lucky catch.
