	CI Ry was. It made it to CR.

>From the CI in Depth page of the RRs of Madison County pages:

When the NYC and PRR merged on Feb. 1, 1968, ownership of
the CI passed to the newly formed Penn Central RR (PC) and with their
bankruptcy, it became a part of Conrail (CR) on April 1, 1976. By the
mid 1980's it was in the process of being scrapped and it's last
locomotive, CI 1, the EMD SW1 had been sold. The last remnant was 
sold on November 4, 1986 and became the Central Indiana & Western.
