Re: PC: xPC engine

This is getting off the topic.

Conrail disposed of tons of PC GP38 and GP38-2's, something like 200-250 of
them, at the end of their leases.  they run all over the place and ended up
in some of the following places:  Chicago Central (via Monongahela),
Chicago & Illinois Midland (an ICG spinoff of the Alton Route lines if I
remember right), successor Gateway Western; EMD's lease fleet, Genesee &
Wyoming, Eurkea Southern, Bangor & Aroostack, etc etc etc.  (GP40's ended
up on D&RGW, MKT, UP, Guilford, a couple rotted at Sayre PA before going
who knows where...)   I think BN bought some CR '38's or '40's too.  

7730's sounds right for the engines on the C&IM and successors; some of
them got run into the ground so bad they never made Gateway Western, they
were rejected before that.
