I think the problem is that the PRR folks (and NYC and NH folks too)
disdain the PC because it spelled the end of "their" railroads, like
Conrail spelled the end of the Reading, EL, CNJ, LV, etc. 

Of course, if that thinking were to prevail, then everyone should hate
all four of the current class one railroads, because surely UP, BNSF,
CSX, and NS or one of their predecessors swallowed up your favorite
railroad at some point or another. (Pretty ridiculous, isn't it?)

Remember, there is a generation of railfans growing up today that will
never know a time when the Santa Fe was around, for example.
