Besides the GP9, did any of the other USA locomotives, or even the Aristo diesels, come in the plain Conrail colors(NOT Conrail Quality)? I dont remember the GP9's in service, but do remember SD40-2's and GP38-2's but all I seem to come up with is the late "Conrail Quality" versions made recently. Did they offer the earlier paint schemes at one time? Thanks Mike

I've only seen the GP38-2 and the SD70MAC in the Conrail Quality scheme. IIRC the GP7/9 was the only road diesel in the plain Conrail scheme from USAT. They did make the NW 2 in plain conrail

I ended up going with my 2nd choice of Santa Fe blue bonnet with a nice used GP38-2 with Phoenix "Big Sound" fitted in it. Nabbed it for $175 in the original box with very light use. Was quite a bit of G scale at the show this past Saturday, all at keen prices. Mike the Aspie
