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

Ain't necessarily so...  They have a Milwaukee Road electric, a GG1, and a
number of other items that are not strictly pre-CSX.  No PC that I'm aware
of, though.

CSX no longer operates the museum.  It was turned over to a non-profit a
while ago, along with a substantial endowment, and the non-profit wants to
appeal to a broad spectrum of railfans with wallets.

If a shark is out there, they would have a legitimate claim.  I would love
to see a D&H example displayed, if not the original NYC lightning stripe.

Also, if the thing was mothballed properly, it might not take much to get
her fired up.  The B&O museum does operate a short excursion line during the
summer months, and a shark would be an excellent addition to the operating
