Re: PC: Re: Ex-PC CR units: Where Are They?

The Finger Lakes RR got a lot of these - seems they needed cars and CR sent
them the worst junk they had, so a few EL cars and a number of PRR and PC
gons showed up.   At one point CR had a gondola shortage, which is what
helped keep these cars rolling, according to some of the magazines.
