>Hi Steve,
My name is Paul Vallone I live in North Adams,MA but grew up in
Pittsfield,MA. My parents house was right next door to former Boston
and Albany west yard. Which was taken over by NYC in the 30's
anyway I grew up durning the Penn Central era I spent many of my
childhood summer days watching and learning their time schedules
by heart.I have a 1901 New York Central lantern which I've turned into a 
lamp due to it's condition. I had to give it a nice paint job
before it rusted out. It now sits up above on my desk...
I would like to find a Penn Central Railroad Police Patch to go
with my Railroad police patch collection. You know where I could
find one?

Take Care,
Paul Vallone
