It turned out to be a long winter for these Alcos. None of them have ran since Thanksgiving 1979, and none would ever run again for Conrail. There are 11 in this view, a mix of C430 and C425 units, with the C425's renumbered into the 5000 series. That 5071 was one of only 2 that ran with the new number. CR 2049, the ex Reading 5212 "Old Ironsides II" , would be scrapped down the street at Midwest Steel in 1981.
