an unofficial site


When you get the page loaded, click on the image or engine number to view a larger image


Built by the PRR starting in 1935, operated by Penn Central, Conrail, NJT and Amtrak
All were retired by 1983

The 4900's were a renumbering to make room for the new AEM7s.

A four was added to the front of 900 series. Some seem to have never been renumbered into the 900 series
