Major purchasers of U36Bs were Auto-Train Corporation and Seaboard Coast Line, which hosted most Auto-Train Corp. traffic. In 1976 four U36Bs that were built by GE for Auto-Train Corporation, which earlier has purchased 13 earlier, were instead sold and delivered to Conrail due to Auto Train's financial difficulties. These units, built to Seaboard Coast Line specifications, were originally fitted with Blomberg trucks ; when Conrail purchased them, the railroad asked GE to replace the trucks with AAR type-B trucks instead.
