Re: PC: Color of road vehicles

<< Lastly, the PC had every LV vehicle.  the PC owned 97% of the LV, if not
 100% of it by the time PRR became PC.  And I am sure all but a few of the
 trucks were "old"; certainly all of them are now. >>
Actually every vehicle used in company service by the PRR/PC and CR up to 1991
were leased from Excelsior Leasing a company started by the PRR. Excelsior was
spun off in the early to mid nineties and still exists as a leasing company.
Since the LV was majority owned by the PRR/PC it also used Excelsior as their
source for wheeled equiptment. 
 Regarding CR vehicles some yellow vehicles were assigned as I currently own
ex CR B-7120 X a 1984 GMC Suburban Hi- Rail truck leased to CR by Excelsior
until 1994. It was the personal vehicle of the Road foreman of Engines in
Altoona for the first 8 years of it's service and it was and still is painted
yellow.   Ken McCorry
