This discussion of preserved electrics got me thinking.....with all the

We need to form a little PC lobbying group to protect our interests!

     When I interned at the B&O Museum in Baltimore 1992-1995 (I still
have contacts there) we had TWO GG1's which caused the collection
manager (and me) a lot of grief.  We finally unloaded one to the railroad
museum in Green Bay, WI in exchange for a FM unit.  The other, 4876
came in Penn Central black with major rust.  As you can imagine
restoring the locomotive is a low priority for the B&O as the PRR was the
arch enemy.  I suggested we at least paint the loco in PC black and, quite
frankly, the collection manager did not give a damn.  If I was in Baltimore
now it would be no sweat.  Texas is far from Baltimore however.
