Re: PC: Spotting predecessors

the RDC is parts supply to the Syracuse Ontrack cars and is MNCR/NYC

One of the wrecked cars is a former NH diner.  I was on the other one on
Sunday -

pretty much all of that stuff is Walter's junker collection and parts for
the other cars in excursion service.  most of them are heavily vandalized
and long out of service, or otherwise wrecked (the one NH diner was smashed
up in a coupling accident).  The hoppers are P&LE, the Boxcars PC and the
rest from all over -

incedentally the 8223 was the First NYC RS3 - now on the Adarondack RR.
