Power short Conrail used a group of Canadian National units to help it through it's first year. Included in that group of CN units were several GP40-2LW GMD's, certainly interesting as this was well before our "wide cab" revolution. Note the 4 section window, the triangle cluster of marker lights, and the high mounted bell. This is CR train TV-98 on the former Erie Lackawanna in Akron, Ohio in October of 1976. The two GP40-2LW's are followed by an M630. Word was Conrail crews "abused" these units, so once the original group returned to Canada few others came to replace them.
