PC: PC technical information request (fwd)

Greetings fellow listers,

The following message came to me as part of the various "fan mail" I
receive as webmaster of the Penn Central Railroad Home Page.
Unfortunately, this request has me stumped, so I'm hoping that one or
more of you might have information that could help these people out.
I believe they are looking primarily for info on the blue and yellow
MTA paint scheme that the FL9s wore during the 1970s.

For those of you who have been with us for a while, these are the same
people who manufacture the FL9 models in HO scale that were discussed
here a number of months ago.
