PC: PC 73313 & PC 73319

       The PC 73313 & 73319 seem to be destined to stay PC under NS for a while. The wheel car 73313 has been in front of the Misc.shop for some time now. I have not gone over to see it up close recently but can see it from the road running from CP WORKS to ROSE yd office. The 73313 seems to have round caps covering the ends of the roller bearing. conversation with a conductor that works the Juniata shop area says it rarely moves
  The 73319 was loaded with wheels at the Rose car shop last Wed and was shifted out to go to Lewistown on the local this past Sat. The cast frame has had a hole cut in it just below the PC logo to give it more room to have the air brake valve installed as it appeared to extend into the car side frame area. No PRR class marking so maybe the L-40-0 marking is ex NYC.
    Can anyone dig up the former class for these two cars?
   Still a few PC G46 gons roaming in the area in fair cond but with markings become very faint except for cars numbers that appear to have been sprayed over to make them more visible.
