Re: PC: Spotting predecessors

A good place to look, surprisingly, is along abandoned branch lines.  Seems
PC and CR sold old or wrecked or maybe even forgotten boxcars to former
customers for storage use, when lines were pulled up.   In Syracuse there
is an untouched PC boxcar less than a mile from the big Carousel Mall, used
to be two but one was cut up a few years ago(? it's gone anyhow).   Trouble
is this one is on the grounds of a well-patrolled scrapyard - wether or not
you can even get permission to shoot it, I'm not sure.
