Re: PC: Walthers is doing PC passenger cars

I would rather think so too, I still remember a big stink in the Model
Railroader letters page in some old back issue, probably as old as I am, all
these people with angry comments about the Penn Central steam locomotive
decal set that Wathers issued at the time.  Which now I really don't get,
what with things like Conrail steam engines (AHM, and they would undoubtedly
have been PC if there still had been a PC) and the rainbow of Varney
Docksiders (I have shells for a NYC jade green and an SP red/grey example)
that no one complained about.

In any case all their newer stuff has been pretty reasonable with regard to
prototype authenticity, so I would expect these to look right...   a Marx PC
steam set it's not.
