PC: Re: PC 5639


You have selected an unusual locomotive to model in that this unit made it
all the way to CR without losing it's NYC paint.  The only PC heralds it
received were on the ends.  The white stripe on the frame and road number on
the nose remained intact.

A view of the right side of the engine is shown on page 121 of Yanosey's PC
Power.  I also have a shot of the left side and it shows that 5639 had the
same horn and bell placement as 5607.  See page 122 of Yanosey's book for a
left side photo of 5607.

The horn on the left side is on the long hood, along the roof line, just
behind the first two grilles.  The bell is located on a bracket above the
headlight on the long end.  This is the standard horn location for NYC's
GP-7 locomotives (Central class DRS-4).

Don't forget the spark arresters!
