There were three 757s built for Indian Airlines with PW2000 engine that
were never delivered to IA. Republic Airlines bought them with the
requirement that RB211-535 engines be added. Later Republic was bought by
Northwest. NWA had lots of 757s with PW2000 engines. They asked Boeing if
the Republic airplanes could be modified to install PW engines for
commonality! NWA did not reengine the airplanes but instead sold them and
bought other new 757s with PW engines.
