PC: RE: List demographics/PCHS

Why PC? Before I moved to NC I grew up with Amtrak, NJT, SEPTA, and CR. My Dad grew up with PRR/PC(he lived a couple blocks from the North Philly station), I adopted the PRR as my favorite RR(following in my fathers footsteps).Over the years I've been learning, learning about the PRR-NYC merger, CTEC, tower closings, etc....
My intrest in PRR/PC also ties in with my love of history and how the RR ties into our US history.

P.S.-What DID become of the PCHS talk? I was offlist for a while and might have missed something important.

Looking at posts to the list in the last few days I was suprised to see that
we have some folks here even younger than myself.  Then we have some that
have worked for PC in the past as well.  Just great to see such a spread.
Younger folks, why PC? I remember it (actually Conrail w/PC paint) but a
couple of you are 18-21, born well after PC-   However, my PC interest is
2-4 years prior to when I was born (1972) so I guess I am in the same boat
as well.

As far as employment backgrounds it looks like we have retirees, students,
profesional railroaders, and even other civil servants, a good spread of

Just an observation.

As for the morning post re: PCHS, count me in, and when/where to meet
