Re: PC: H-16-44s in PC

You won't find anyone that will argue against a modeler doing whatever
suits him.  Same goes for manufacturers.  "Life Like" made green PC
F-7s, Athearn produced a PRR DD-40, Penn Line made a Great Northern
GG-1, Walthers ran Penn Central steam decals ... the list is endless.
Many O gaugers even run 3 rail track. Lots of folks must buy this
unprototypical stuff.

But the person who originally asked the question is obviously interested
in accuracy, and the answer seems to be that no H-10-44s were repainted
in full PC paint.  So, if a modeler wants to do an accurate paint job
representing the PC as it existed circa. 1968-70, he'd use a predecessor
road's paint scheme on an H-10-44. Every engine on the roster as of 1
Feb. 68 was a "PC" engine, even those that were never repainted. Why do
an unprototypical paint job, when it's just as easy to do an accurate
