I was driving through McKeesport tonight, and took a few pics of the
preserved Martha Washington. This parlor-observation car, built as PRR #7127
was built in 1952 by Budd. (Gotta love that PC Passenger Car Directory, put
out by our own PCRRHS!)
It's currently serving as a travel-agent's office, and looks pretty good
considering it's spent the last 20 years or so out in the elements. Too bad
the interior's been gutted. I guess I can't complain, since it is 2002, and
it still has the PC letterboards, and was saved.
Anyway, my question is this: On the side of the car, all the letterboards
(numbers and car name) are in red, while the PC one is black. The
numberboards on the end doors are black. Did PC just leave the PRR boards on
Second question is that according to the Directory, there was another car in
class POC85C (#7126, Benjamin Franklin). Whatever happened to it?
