Re: PC: Re: Lightning stripes in the PC era? NOPE--nor for RS-11s

Agreed.  Except.....   When something is NOT "true to prototype" that
information needs to be shared.  Then you can make up your own mind
whether you care or not.  Personally, I'm getting one, just because i like
how it looks.  However, if the RS11's in stripes were actually USED on the
NYC, I would have bought 3 or 4 and renumbered them.

That's the nice thing about the PC, there is hardly anything that they
didn't have.<g>
