Re: PC: Mark-outs

I live in New Orleans (as of 02-01), so train shows are kind of "shallow" in regard to PC/PRR/NYC stuff. I would be glad to buy prints of NYC/PRR/NH remarks to PC (those still in original predecessor paint but with PC reporting marks and logos superimposed), but there is no one to sell them to me. The South is a beautiful, wonderful place to live but lacks proximity to and interest in failed Northeastern RR's---my own love of the PC notwithstanding. I guess that is part of the challenge of being a PC modeler!

No list that I know of. Check train shows. Sometimes priceless slides
can be found.
I have seen X29's and X58's so far.

with "ghosted" road name boards on some of the scruffy stainless

hehehe I hear you brother!
I have 2 LL E8's, one black PC w/ AMTK #'s and one AMTK. I plan on an
AMTK "rainbow" train w/ a little of everything.
