PC: Re: Re: PC passenger decals

  I ordered and received the black portions of set PH-133 just last week. 
There should be more.  Champion did mention they would consider a rerun if
they can be guaranteed sales of 300 per set.  Maybe we should "gang up"!! 
If we can get another source we'll need car names for sleepers and parlors
which were lacking in the Champion sets.   I hope the soon to be released
'Penn Central Color Guide to Freight and Passenger Equipment' sparks some
more interest.
