PC: RE: Cattle cars on TV-12

It was still going on when I lived in Pittsburgh from 1984-86.

List members:

After looking at a picture of TV-12, resplendent with a pair of 86' hi cube 
cattle cars on the head end, I started thinking, I know these cars carried 
hogs to a slaughterhouse in Philadelphia but which one?  Was this the last 
movement of livestock on Penn Central?  I'm going to assume TV12's schedule 
made it a "NF" i.e. No Feed train.  Somehow, this movement lasted in the 
Conrail years, 1979 for sure but maybe 1980 or even '81.  I can check on 
that.  Any comments?
