PC: Re: Car Cleaning Solutions

It was something like Plexiglass or Lexan. Didn't take well to cleaning
solutions is an understatement. Some of the windows look like the
acid-etched glass that was used in office doors in the old days!

Coach 6082 is currently in service at NARM with new glazing. 6090 is
getting new glazing so it can eventually be placed into service. 6072 may
not be placed into service for quite a while, so if you're in the
Huntsville, Alabama area you can see how bad the solutions affected the
windows; 6072 will be the car that still has Amtrak lettering.

All of the Pennsy Budd coaches came to the North Alabama Railroad Museum
to Amtrak, who received them from Penn Central.
