Here is a newspaper article from the early 1980s. It discusses how a guy named Richard Dicker took over the company thru the bk, negotiated with the federal gov for $2.1billion for the sales of the rail property and how they were going to become a diversified conglomerate. It took PC 8 years to earn money again. They were in the hole from 1970 to 1978.
