If an old page on website A is replaced with a 301 redirect to another website such that the page on website A is delisted from Google (as desired) but the website owner decides afterwards that they actually prefer to keep the page on website A ranked, if they remove the 301 redirect and restore the old page on website A, does that page regain the PageRank it had before?

In other words, can the process be reversed without loss of PageRank? Does Google keep historical records of PageRank that can be re-activated when a page is re-listed?
