I dont think there are NJT diesels running into Penn Station
 They have push/pull electrics.  During the Penn Central years
 the FL9s would not often work on electric so they ran the
 diesels in the Park Ave tunnel.  Metro NOrth has on ocasion run
 their F units into GCT as well.  I guess nobody got caught
