Yes, it's the Yorktown car. More info: it's not settled that the car 
will be painted PC. Some members  want PC, others want PRR. In any 
case, it will be a long time before the car is done, it's in such 
rough shape.

I'm trying to get a deal going with the museum to sell Bowser HO N5 
cars as a fund raiser for the PC caboose. If it works out, I'll post 
details to the list.
