PC: Why model PC?

I model CR in July of '78.  Some people ask me why do I model at this time.
I like the mix-match of engines, PC, EL, RDG, LV and, early blue repaints line
the engine terminals. Also the different builders of locomotives; Alco, EMD,
GE and a hand full of Baldwins fill the rosters.  At the other end of the train
cabooses from all the the roads that formed Big Blue.  Modeling at this time
is sort of hard for me. I was a mere lad of eleven months at this time.
Railfanning and modeling only have come to me in the last eight years.  But, I
do rember some things, Porter Tower, and cabooses.  I have only recently 
started to notice the heretiage of the equipment that rolls by on its way to
Chicago or to far off points to the east.  

Now 60M's, dash8's pull the trains that once were handled by GP's.  F40's
replaceing the mighty Hudsons.  What Happened to this?

I whould like to thank all of you who are keeping the worm alive in my heart 
and my mind.
