PC: Re: PC modelers/more than 2 genus types

I have a "Toy" Penn Central Railroad, my Diesels are Black and they run on
Little Tracks and they use Electrical Power furnished by the local Power
Company (not really all that prototypical) and they never earned any revenue
at all in the last Twenty-Five years of Operation.....But I have fun with
them...I also have a real LIFE!!!
