Reply to "Pittsburgh & Lake Erie / New York Central"

The Pennsy did the same with owned but independent subsidiaries  until merged into the parent corporation.    For a long time the equipment owned by companies "west of Pittsburgh" was lettered "Pennsylvania Lines" .    The companies such as PFT&C (Fort Wayne) and PCC&STL (PanHandle) were the two biggies, but there were many others.    Until after WW I sometime in the early 1920s, PRR Lines West maintained separate engineering and building shops in Fort Wayne.    The PRR N1 2-10-2 for example was Lines West design to do the same work as the PRR I1 2-10-0.    The PRR H10 was a LInes West Design while the H9 was PRR.

By the 30s and onward the power moved around a lot.
