RE: PC: What a modern PC autorack would look like



Hi:
 
I am modeling one.  I disassembled a Walters autorack, left the trailer train flat car markings in tact, and painted the enclosed section jade.  I left the roof silver.  I still have to apply the PC logos, but you get the idea.

Uh... I think it's safe to say it's totally bogus.  The very first fully enclosed racks didn't come out until like '76 or '77 anyway.  In addition, the PC partially-enclosed racks used the new Trailer Train yellow scheme with the modern lettering.  There is some remote chance, I suppose, that someone at PC or Conrail put a modern rack on old NYC 89' flat and attached the PC signs to it... but I doubt it.  Nver say never when it comes to the PC paint dept...
