PC: PC predecessors and subsidiaries.......take 2.....

   I understand that my last message might not have made it through, so
I am writing it again.
   I am trying to paint a switcher for NYC during early PC years.  To do
this, I need to find out the last scheme used by the NYC for their
switchers.  I have seen pictures of switchers painted with either the
NYC "cigar band" logo on the cab OR the printed "NEW YORK CENTRAL" on
the hood, but not both.  Did NYC ever use both on the same unit?  If so,
which units?  I would prefer to see a picture of a SW-7/9/1200 for
   I have several questions that deal with PC, NYC and it subsidiaries.
First, I understand that the IHB (Indiana Harbor Belt) was part of the
New York Central System (NYC).  Was it still owned by PC after the
merger?  What was the paint scheme used by IHB during PC years and was
there any special paint schemes used to denote PC ownership?
  I also heard that DT&I (Detroit Toledo & Ironton) was owned, at least
partially, by PC.  Is this true?  Again, were there any special paint
schemes used to denote PC ownership?
  My last question deals with the P&LE (Pittsburgh & Lake Erie).  I
would like to know how they painted their engines during the NYC era as
well as the PC era.

I would appreciate any or all of these questions answered as I am unable
to look up any literature at this time.

Thanx in advance
