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.
