PC: PRR/PC PS6L Caltapa Falls & Thanks to all

David et al:

Cool photo, but not a coach-  it is the sleeper/buffet/lounge Caltapa Falls,
if the number is right.  The car is actually a PS6L, and was PC 4404.  The
PC Color guide lists that all but one of this class of six-double
bedroom/lounge sleepers were distroyed in 1970 to 1971 and that PC 4402
Aspen Falls was the only survivor into Amtrak, going to them in 1974.  This
contradicts what the museum says.  The museum has car 8404/4404, not
8402/4402 so naturally the book is wrong?!?

Here a link to the floorplan of the PS6L Series cars:


The car is available in N and HO from Union Staion Products, should be
#4131, same as Pullman plan ## (easy enough!!)

Here is a link for USP: http://usp.dsop.com/sides.html

Scroll down to PRR car listing-  My passenger questions in the last few days
have revolved around what PRR cars that USP makes made it into PC-  want to
get an order together :-)

They have some NYC cars too for all you water level route fans-

Thanks Dave, and thanks to all with my passenger questions.

Now to have some yellow PC letters and worms made....
