Re: PC: PC Loco Questions


	I can tell you where one of the rebuilt ex-CR, ex-PC, ex-LV, ex-PRR
RS-3m's is.   The LV 211 (CR 9920/PC 5569/PRR 8445), RS-3m hammerhead, is
preserved in the collection of the Rochester Chapter NRHS's Rochester &
Genesee Valley Railroad Museum in Rush, NY.  The unit is fully operable and
has been restored to its Lehigh Valley livery.   Pics can be seen on our
website at http://www.rochester.ny.us/railmuseum.html

	I am not sure where a complete list resides.   I know someone has a list
of extant RS and S units, but I am not sure if the list has only "pure"
Alco units on it or includes the modified RS3's as well.   The URL
currently escapes me however.   I will try to dig it up.   

	Hope this helps.

Until later,
