That's the one. "Blunt" ended, rear facing windows on either side of a

Last time I was there, the Penn Central name board, car name and numbers
were still in place. I don't think the worms were still in place. The
font used for car numbers looked very PRR.

Nope... no way, no how was it ex-NYC.
I can try to dig up the photo I have for it and get it to Jerry to add to
