You bet ! The really curious part of all this (at least to me, since I go
back far enough to have prowled the rails in NYC & PRR days) is how I find
myself scanning the consists for ANY traces of PC heritage, yet also recall
the absolute disdain for the PC when it happened...the hobby shops around
here couldn't give away anything in PC reporting marks due to the rabid
factionalism of the railfan community who were incensed at PC for having
taken away "their" Pennsy and Central circa 1968 B.C. (before Conrail)...and
now CR is 20+ years old and about to fade.
Somebody's gettin' old here...
