Group: This is to provide a potentially juicy Christmas present to all PC and NYC fans.
We are currently working with Rail Tours Inc (Jim Thorpe, PA) to paint their recently acquired U30B to it's as-delivered NYC paint scheme. We will leave it in that livery for a month or so. It will then wear the FULL Penn Central paint scheme for a couple of months before finally being painted into a L&NE inspired corporate scheme. The painting will be done through the newly formed group "Northeast Railroads Historical Society, INC" ( a non-profit historical society). We will be soliciting donations to assist with the restoration. Anyone interested in contributing funds or time may contact me off-list at firstname.lastname@example.org for more info. I will forward all requests to the president of the society. We are still developing various donation levels with appropriate rewards.
