Yes, but there's a difference--the D&H is still around (sort of). :-) We're
talking about a railroad that disappeared 23 years ago.

Nope, won't happen, as long as my mail server doesn't die and I'm still alive.
Besides, we're actually doing pretty well--we have 167 subscribers as of this
morning. Plenty of interest--although as with any list, usually only about
10% of the listers do 90% of the talking.

I'm going to pretend that this isn't a slam against the role and past
actions of the listmaster.....

I have plenty of PC memorabilia in my back room of my house. There's
timetables, maps, books, paperweights, etc, that I have around. Hopefully in
the next couple months I'll have a 12" scale PRR position light for the yard.
I even have an artifact on my wall from the recent "un-merging" of the PC--an
"NYC" sticker that Conrail was using to reletter cars for CSX.....

I actually bought new numbers to reletter my mailbox, but they're not PC-style.
I wouldn't mind finding someplace that sells PRR or PC emblem stickers that I
could put on the mailbox, so long as they could survive the weather and the
snowplows.... Anyone know of someone who makes those?
