Re: PC: Re: PCHS Newsletter feedback

It's great to be getting all this attention to the PCHS newsletter name!

I always thought that the METROLINER or some variation would be a good
name, but the recent postings from west of the Hudson do bring up the
geographical quality of the Penn Central.   It DIS exist west of the NE

How about something along the lines of the PC WORM?  It is NOT geographical
and it ,by the nature of the PC emblem, shows the variety of directions the
railroad lines went.

Another sugggestion from North Grafton, MA,      "near the Tail End of the
C in PC".
