Did you get photos of these cars Jerry?

While the band Split Enz might have performed a song called "History
Never Repeats", I saw today firsthand that it does......at least in
terms of the Penn Central:

West of Huron, OH, on the Conrail Chicago Line, I photographed an
old green Penn Central gondola heading east on train ELPI-3B. The
reporting marks and number: NYC 598014. I also saw a number of
Conrail high-cube boxcars, coil steel cars, and hoppers relettered NYC,
but this was the first car in PC paint that I've seen relettered. What
comes around, goes around....

BTW, has anyone seen any Conrail cars relettered PRR? Supposedly, they
were doing that too, but I haven't seen any yet. I did see last week
by Cleveland Hopkins Airport PRR 260091, a Pennsy H42A covered hopper
car in clean, original PRR paint. Next to it was EL 21354, a two-bay
Center Flow covered hopper in mint original paint. You gotta love it....
