An eastbound general merchandise train is just about to pass the historic Orrville depot in Orrville, OH in July 1996. Orrville is on the ex-PRR Fort Wayne line and was where the Hudson-Akron-Columbus branch of the PRR crossed the mainline at one time. In this consist is CR SD40-2 6458, GECX 0593 and CR SD60I 5605. Of note, GECX 0593 was once a Santa Fe locomotive once painted in the SPSF scheme. Many of these same C30-7s were eventually painted in Conrail blue and became either part of the CRL lease fleet, or GE lease fleet. This links show a picture of 0593 before being painted the color of Conrail blue.
