Penn Central and Conrail Heritage ‘Unit”

While at Berea on Saturday afternoon I spotted this covered hopper that sported a dual heritage of Penn Central and Conrail. The PC heritage is obvious given the green paint and the Penn Central logo and name.

But look in the upper left hand corner of this car and you will see that someone has painted out a Conrail logo and markings.

I also noticed that someone painted out what appeared to be lettering above the Penn Central identification and my first thought was that had been the Conrail name. But there are just five letters painted out and Conrail has six letters. So I don’t know what it was that painted out there. Something else was painted out in the upper right hand corner of the car as well.
