I shot a set of MP-54s in service at Trenton, NJ on 8 Jan 77, so it
looks like they did see some limited service at the beginning of the
Conrail era -- but as you know, that didn't last very long.  I never saw
a Conrail painted MP-54.

The only MP-54s I am aware of that were used in the Baltimore/Washington
area were PC #659 and Washington Terminal #300.  Both were used to
shuttle railroad employees between Washington Union Station and the Ivy
City yards.
