Alan Page's CR: 5-1982 to 4-1984

This album features year seven and eight of Conrail operations. 

CR blue was almost universal with the appearance of only an occasional predecessor paint scheme.

Over 7 1/2 years of CR-contracted commuter operations in NJ came to an end on January 1, 1983 when NJ Transit took control of operations. 

Former PC E-8A retirements began following the end of CR commuter operations. GG-1 service continued until October 31, 1983.

For 1984, the spring saw large retirements of 20-cylinder and electric power at Harrisburg and Rutherford.
