Re: PC: Conrail Exec. Train... past owners?

According to Conrail Motive Power Review 1968-1991, Conrail 1's heritage is: 
built by Pullman in 1920;  Pullman Shannon, 1816; SOU 3102; SOU 10; SOU 3; 
to CR in 1983. For Conrail 10 built by Pullman in 1925;  Pullman Queen 
Elizabeth; Pullman Hudson River; NYC Kalamazoo River; NYC Victoria Park; NYC 
30; PC 30; PC 76; CR 76. As for the other questions questions, I can not 
answer. However I belive that there is a B&W picture of PC 76 in red, white 
and blue in a book that I have but can't put my finger on it right now.
