PC: Re: Re: Car color question.

If you are looking for car #499086, then this is a one of a kind car.  It's
the only car in Lot #809-F built in 1951 by Greenville.  Nowhere in my
collection can I locate a photo of this car and I don't have a photo
reference to any book published.  :-(

A 1974 ORER shows the car still as NYC #499086.
It may have been renumbered PC #768040 since it's the only car I have listed
in a 1979 ORER that matches in all dimensions.
Now if #768040 is the correct renumbered car - It is listed a PC #768040 in
1988, then is listed as Conrail  #768040 in 1989 - but is not listed in a
1993 ORER at all.

Hope this helps a bit.
