OK, I was wrong...there was a PY-3 and a PY-4. What was interesting to
me was that PY-4 stopped in New Castle, PA, while PY-3 did not.

Train PY-3 carried Lake Coal from Conway to Ashtabula, so I would
assume that PY-4 would return the empties to Conway, as PY-4 was the
only scheduled train from Ashtabula to Conway in 1969. PC may have
run hopper empties, but they don't appear in my freight schedule book.
