Re: PC: NYC sharks that didn't make it to PC

This is getting wildly off-topic, but that U25B was sold to a private
individual according to a recent Railpace and appeared at RMDI - the old
'Valley Coxton shops - for repairs, this after it was leased elsewhere.
The B&O museum tries to concentrate on B&O/C&O/WM stuff, apparently.

They received a U25B a couple of years back that they were going to preserve
and paint for the L&N (I understand it was an X-L&N unit working on the
TransKentucky) as a CSX predecessor road. This matters on the PC page
because now the NYC, PC and CR are predecessor roads for the CSX, so perhaps
they would consider acquiring these unique engines for the museum, and one
each for the PC and CR......just a thought, of course, but would'nt they
look great in lightning stripes at the B&O? I wish that the museum had also
acquired an old U36B to be restored for the SCL and put in their museum, but
that is off topic. Look at my name for the reason why, though.
