The other issue that I had with the new U25B's, IIRC, is that the PRR, NYC, 
and PC versions all have the same road number! If you wanted to model an early
PC lashup of two or three of them, you would have to renumber two of the three.
The folks at Stewart, while they usually give us great products, must have
been a little lazy on these. How hard would it have been to produce a
different number for each roadname?
