>When PC took over the P&LE, was that when all their GP7s were renumbered?
Not according to Bob Reid's PC System Bi-Annual, page 133. PC originally
assigned numbers in the 5600 - 5900 series. The engines were, however,
renumbered into the 1500 series before 1973.
I do not remember the circumstances behind P&LE's independence (and do not
have the reference books that would say). However, NYC (and successor PC)
owned most, but not all, of the P&LE stock. PC's failure to absorb P&LE may
have been more of a matter of PC's inability to buy out the remaining
shares, rather than P&LE's insistence on becoming independent.
