PC: Re: Re: PC FA's

Though not a PC original,
One of the HEP's (#610, I believe) is formerly WM302.  This was purchased
last year by the WMRHS and is currently undergoing re-fitting to permit it
to travel "home" to the Society museum in Union Bridge for cosmetic
restoration.  Rumor has it that the unit still has its prime mover intact,
although inoperable.  (Think of it as a giant zinc weight!)

This could hold out hope that a former PC unit might have survived with its
guts still in place.
