Re: PC: PC/TPW power pool

Dear Mr. Thompson,

The video Conrail's Beginning, or one of the three Panhandle tapes, 

all by Clear Block, shows Penn Central and Toledo, Peoria, and Western                                                                   
locomotives together on a freight train called the Rocket.  It has 

been some time, since I watched these films.

                                      Thank you.


                                      James Koo
