Re: PC: Penn Central X79 cars

Frank, I've got 2 ORER's that I have here at home. 1978 shows PC reporting 
for 91 of the cars and CR for 9. In the 1985 ORER shows 97 of these wearing 
KELX reporting marks. If I find some time today or tomorrow, I'll run over 
to the hobby shop down the road look through his ORER's to see if I can 
narrow down the change over date.  I also want to model 2 or 3 of these 
cars. I haven't given it any thought of how to build any. Got any ideas?
