PC: TrailVan was Train Symbols

>The Penn Central created the TrailVan service name by combining the "Trail" from PRR's "Truc Train" trailer service and the "Van" from the NYC's "SuperVan" service.
PC had an employee contest to rename the combined service.  It was announced in the June 1, 1968 issue of the PC POST.  The winning entry is discussed in the October 1, 1968 issue.  The article said it was the only entry that had TrailVan spelled exactly that way - one word with the T and V capitalized.  The winner got $1000.
