PC: Re: PRRT&HS convention

Was there much railroadiana for sale at the PRR T&HS convention? I just
joined this year. Man, do THEY put out a magazine! One of the first things I
noticed in the PRR T&HS mag. was a photo of ARSENAL tower with the PC sign
on it (a cast iron keystone sign that PC painted over).
You're right about that large Metro. coin hanging in back of Stuart &
Alfred, Jerry. I've often wished that it were in my basement! (Although
frankly, I'm WAY out of wall space...)
