PC: Re: Re: Lightning stripes in the PC era?

Yes and No.   The NYC's sharks went to the Monongahela somewhere between '66
and '68.   When the MGA wore them out and retired them, 1205 and 1216 were
sold to the D&H.   Of course those two still exist in Michgan.

Although the PRR had gone so far as to re-engine 3 sharks with Alco 251's, I
believe even those were retired by 1968 (although one B unit existed into
the 90's converted to a mobile generator).

So although some did make it to the PC era, they didn't run on the PC
