exact number of this locos? Did the PC roster any of the NYC or PRR E7B 
booster units? Also, I would apreciate any help concernig horn type and 
location of the ladders in the front.

One ex-PRR engine was numbered #4201, and later donated to the Strasburg 
RR museum in Pennsylvania. On my website, I have a pictures of E7A #4201 
before & after restoration. It's hard to tell from the pictures, but ALL 
the windows on the left side (i think) were blanked out in 1992. But, 
since this engine has recently been restored, I don't know if they still 
are. Also, at least 2 of Conrail's E8A's have had all their round 
windows plated over also.  Hope this helps.
