PC: Re: Hopper reporting marks

"P C B" leased car by PC.  There also was a "P C A" reporting mark;
Athearn's HO Conrail modern box car has the same reporting mark on it. 
I've seen a similar car here locally in the past, to the covered hopper.   

Some PC, NYC subsidaries still carried their original marks in the PC era
as well, such as the Peoria & Eastern car mentioned -
