Re: PC: LV cars painted like PC

In addition, PC owned 90 - some % of LV, so my sources say that PC gave cash 
- starved LV a lot of Deepwater Green paint to use, hence the 40 rebuilds 
and cabooses that were in PC green too.  The X58 cars were actually painted 
in Century (jade) Green, the NYC color, which differed from PC green in that 
it was more of a blueish, lighter shade than PC green.
