    The C425 (Century 425) was built by Alco in the 1960s.

    Phase I:

    The main feature distinguishing all C425s from all C424s is the oddly shaped raised area on the rear of the hood: it's where the "Conrail" lettering or the "PC" logo are located on those railroads' units.

    Differences in fuel tank do not disinguish phases.
