Re: PC: Typical Penn Central Passenger Operations

I don't recall any F7s used in passenger service. PC used E8s, GG1s, and 
Geeps on various passenger runs. They *did* however, have ex-NH FL9s. I 
haven't seen any FL9s available for MSTS. As for the cars, mix up the paint 
schemes--throw in some cars with green window bands, some plain silver cars, 
some ex-PRR cars....
