PC: Re: Some Qs about detailing P2K E7 and E8 for PC.

  I'll give this a try.

Panels containing port holes were replaced sporadically.  Some units had all
of them replaced, some units had some replaced and other units had none
replaced.  There doesn't seem to be a standard for this so It's best to look
at a photo.

>Also concerning The E7, the photograph I have is from what seems

Ex-PRR units are pretty easy to identify.  They have the lift rings on the
nose.  These lift rings are on F units as well.  The number boards are flat
on PRR E-7's the best that I can tell.  I'm sure there are exceptions.

Ex NYC E-7 road numbers:
4001-4002, 4005-4008, 4010-4012, 4014-4015,4018, 4019, 4021-4035
Units 4001,4002, 4005-4008 had the small side mounted number boards

Ex PRR E-7 road numbers
4200-4206, 4208-4214, 4216, 4217, 4219-4221, 4223-4235, 4237-4239, 4240-4245

>Did the PC roster any of the NYC or PRR E7B booster units?

Yes, PC rostered E7-b boosters

Horn and grabs(ladders) varied from unit to unit so once again it's best to
look at a photo .

Alot of E-units were scrapped or retired through out PC's tenure.  Some even
"donated" their prime movers for the Dewitt RS-3 rebuilding program.
