Re: PC: Locomotive Modifications

This came through in the wrong order, the reply before the original
message...  But to answer the question:

PC had in Dewitt a mother-slug (#6849 I think) consisting of an RSD15
re-engined with a 567, and a slug made from a wrecked (?) RSD4/5.  in it's
original configuration, it retained the cab but said cab was plated over.  
The slug also got what looked to be the short hood off an RS1 grafted in
place of the radiator section of the long hood.  Later the engine got
scalped, IE the cab removed and resulting gap filled in, before Conrail
finally scrapped the thing as a whole in the early 80's.
