PC: RE: logansport/mexico

I have a few contacts of former PC and a few Conrail guys in my area I
will start asking I wonder if toby has put anything in the local paper
in the tri county area that the track ran ?  I will check with the few
small musems in this area over the couple of weeks.

 In their just released 2007 Vol.2 catalog MTH has offered the E-44
electrics in Penn Central, Conrail and Pennsylvania liveries.  They will
be produced in 3-rail 0-scale and possibly 2-rail 0 as well.   The
annoying news is that the PC units seem to be available only in a set
with four Tropicana juice reefers and a PC N5c buggy.  
 I'm only interested in the locomotive so if I buy the set would anyone
be interested in buying just the reefers and cabin?

Hi everyone,

I received the following question at the PCRRHS mailbox, and I can't 
find anything on this line. Might anyone from Lines West territory have 
any answers on this one? Thanks.

I am looking for information on the locomotive(s) assigned to work the
Columbia City Secondary during 1974.  As memory serves me, it was a
Twin-stacked EMD switcher (NW2 or SW7).  This line branched southwest 
from Columbia City Indiana (Vandale on some maps and timetables) to 
Mexico Indiana.  It was serviced on an as-needed basis by FW13 & FW14 
originating at Columbia City.  The line was the remanant of the 
Pennsyvania RR Butler Branch which ran from Logansport, Indiana to 
Butler. It was later known as the Logansport Branch until PC abandoned 
the Logansport to Mexico section in 1968.  Pictures or descriptions of 
paint schemes would be helpful in a modeling project.
