To my knowledge New Penn has never had anything to do with  PC.  It is a dist'n and
warehousing co.  Pennsylvania Trick Lines (PTL) was the former PC and Conrail owned
trucking co.  It was spun off by CR as a private co. about 6-7 years ago largely in
response to allegations of anti-trust over giving their carrier (PTL) special
preference and privlidged information to give it an edge over other drayage
