Re: PC: Black pc cabooses

Regarding the brown PC cabins for PP&L service . Take a good look at the 
steps and the end castings. You'll see smaller steps and push brackets 
attached to the end castings to allow the cars to go thru rotary dumpers at 
PP&L facilities. The steps were shorter than the standard steps for clearance 
reasons. These cars lasted into CR with the same numbers and modifications. I 
believe there were also some cabins painted a blue color that were used in 
the Detroit Edison unit train service. Not sure what numbers or modifications 
to these cars.
