PC: Couple of Questions


A couple of questions, one PC related and one contemporary.

First, does anyone know if PC and later Conrail used engines from E8's AND E7's in the RS-3 MOD program?  Several E7 hulks sat around Altoona 1973 to 1977ish and I am wondering if they gave up their innards for the program under Conrail or PC.  Since there were 96 RS-3 MOD's, at least 48 E's were salvaged.  I suspect several of the earliest Amtrak E unit retirements that sat around Altoona 1975-1977 also contributed but do not know for sure.  If anyone can shed light on that issue, I would also appreciate the information.

The second question is more contemporary.  Does anyone know what happened to Extra 2200 South?  I have not received an issue in a long time (last one I have is Issue 123 - April 30, 2002) and my efforts to contact them via telephone (using the number in the most recent issue) have not been returned.  Any information would be appreciated.
