I think this became PC 9437, probobly retired around 1971-72. I doubt it still exists unless it was aquired by GE or Southern Rails. Anyone else?

A little more info

Pennsylvania Railroad Locomotive Pictorial, Volume Nine by Withers, agrees with N. Todd's information.

In addition, he shows that it was indeed renumbered to 9437 on 13-March-1967. He also shows that it was not retired, as of the startup date of Penn Central.
