That's a good question - I don't _think_ so. The P&LE passenger Geep was
what - 1500 or 1501? Definite conflict there...

I still miss the old P&LE U-boats; on the Pittsburgh-Aliquippa stretch of
the line, I saw damn near everything in the late 70's/80s; old B&O painted
Geeps, ex-Frisco(!) units, WM-painted stuff, the Pattrain F-unit taking the
demo train up the Montour, the old Montour Yard at Coraopolis, P&LE and
Chessie bay-windows, BQ23-7s and Geep-30s serving as road slugs...
