Poor photo processing with a aging, fading photo and , is this a ex PRR GP weathered out a bit greenish????
A true Green ( not DGLE) Geep - I doubt it
I was at Buckeye many times - I never saw one.

Here's one that has me at a loss, and I'm hoping someone might be able to
shed some light on this:
A visitor to my PC web site mailed me a few days ago and said he had a
picture of himself, brother, and grandparents on a green PC locomotive at
Buckeye Yard in Columbus, Ohio, taken when he was 5-6 years old. He asked
me if I had any more pictures of green PC locomotives.
I wrote back and basically gave him the "silly rabbit, PC engines are
black; sure it wasn't a caboose?" answer. Here was his reply:
> Yes, I am sure it is a locomotive. I found the picture, and the PC road

Well, needless to say, this one has me stumped. Except for DSI #15, I'm not
aware of any PC units, much less GP9s, that were painted green. Then again,
I should know better to say "never" when it comes to PC.
Can any of you with larger PC slide collections check and see if there is
any photographic proof of a green PC 7218 out there? I'm truly baffled on
this one, as I figured if PC had any green engines, *everyone* would know
