Subject: PC: Penn Central Power Redux

> Hi again all----A year or so ago I was hectoring Robert Yanosey about
doing a color guide for the Seaboard Coast Line (CGW gets a book and SCL
doesn't?!?!). I took the time then to also ask about doing a version of Penn
Central Power in COLOR, instead of black and white. I won't speak for him,
but I think the idea has merit. As good as "PC Power" is in B&W, modeling is
much better when you know what color the weathering is. Is it sludge, rust,
sand streaking, oil or battery leakage? With PC, it could have been any/all
of them! Further, it would be an entirely new offering with (hopefully) more
pics seldom/never seen before. A reprint of the original would be as nice as
it is unlikely, but a "brand extension" of "Penn Central Power: 13-D In Full
Sort-of Color" would be a mighty fine thing. If anyone has his ear, consider
whispering this into it
