   The Pennsylvania railroad got rid of the induction radios back in
1964... 4 years before the PC merger.  Still, it took some time to
remove all of the apparatus from the locomotives and some were not
removed until AFTER the PC merger.  Indeed, some engines got painted
into PC, but still retained the roofline antenna.  I couldn't tell you
how many locomotives had the antenna during PC.
