Re: PC: U-25C modeling

There are two pictures of U25Cs leading hopper trains in the Lake Region
Cleveland Division Lakefront Photo Gallery on the PC web site. As far as
I know, they're the only two I have. If you can get your hands on a copy
of Pennsy Power II or III, they each have one engineer's side roster
shot, and PC Power has several pictures.

Too bad you're not modelling HO scale, since AHM produced a U25C in
plastic (didn't run real well, but that can be fixed).

I'm still trying to figure out how I got this title awarded to me.....it
looks like Ed and Eben knows more about them that I do! Thanks for the
followups, guys.

One minor correction, though: PRR and PC only rostered 20 U25Cs,
numbered 6500-6519. The U28Cs started at 6520.

BTW, Gregg.....on that "old Jerry" thing....I'm willing to bet that I'm
actually younger than you. :-)

Hope all of this helps!
