As a reference to the MU cars used in the New York City area, let me point
out a couple of links on my PC site which may be helpful for those who are
new to the topic:

I have a photo of that car in my "to do" files, taken in October 1997. If I
get a chance later this week I'll try to post it and a Roger Williams car
photo in my "to do" files. (What I really need is to spend a weekend
catching up on updating the site...unfortunately, I have a magazine article
to write first before I can do that... But I'll try to get those posted by
the end of the week.)
