As I understand, the Penn Central Transportation Co. was spun off from the
parent company after the bankruptcy at some point, and was sort of an
"orphan". The parent company, that still went by the name "Penn Central"
kept its holdings like Great Southwest Corporation, Buckeye Pipeline, etc.
but ironically (and perhaps deservedly for dumping the railroad) went into
bankruptcy a few years later.
An interesting aside - in 1985, I was in Wood Tower at Homewood PA on the
former Fort Wayne line of PRR, then Conrail. I noticed that the radio
equipment certificate posted on the wall was still registered as owned by
Penn Central, yet it had a current date! After Conrail, probably within the
first ten years or so, some of the properties in our area and others, even
some formerly Erie Lackawanna land, had blue signs posted heralding the
property as for sale - the kicker was the phone number and instructions to
call Joe Blow at Penn Central!
I guess good things and names just don't give up so easily.
