By 1983, much had changed on Conrail. The rainbow of locomotives that made the early years so interesting had largely been transformed into a uniform sea of blue, and new power meant the retirement of old mainstays like all these SD45s, shown in the deadlines at Rutherford Yard. Units like 6078 (ex-EL 3613) and 6141 (ex-PC 6141) helped pull big blue through the tumultuous early years, shame to see their lives end like this.
