   PC did a lot of hiring in the Cleveland area during the early 70's in
both train and engine service, as well as clerks, tower operators, car
dept., etc. What happened here was a significant cutback of low-seniority PC
hires following Conrail's startup when (more senior) Erie-Lackawanna
personnel bumped onto the rosters as opposed to taking a buyout when their
districts were eliminated during the re-structure. I suspect this probably
was the case system-wide, although 82 does seem like an awfully small number
of PC people to have made it to April '76.
