Actually, "Dark Green Locomotive Enamel" *was* the official name for
what the model railroad industry calls "Brunswick Green." There was no
such thing as "Brunswick Green" on any (AFAIK) PRR documents. On the
PRR-Talk list, DGLE is used as an abbreviation for the offical name of
the "black but slightly green" color that the Pennsy painted its

Being a PRR fan myself, I sort of cringe when I see the term
"Brunswick Green", but since this is a Penn Central list, you all can
use whichever term you wish.....
