Re: PC: A "Penn Central System" gondola?

Same here, I grew up right next to PC on the Buffalo Line and I don't remember  "system " being on any equipment. I do remember seing boxcars and gons with PC logos with P&LE reporting marks though.

I'm from Missouri.  Only photographic evidence is going to convince me that
Penn Central ever used the word "system" as part of their name on their own

I beg to differ with you. I talked to a gentleman who worked for PC and he
told me there were a few labeled Penn Central System and they were
generally used within the MOW Department. Mostly for transferring parts
such as wheelsets, boxcar doors, etc.
