RE: PC: Review: Penn Central in Color (in KC)

  Thanks, Jerry.  I actually never heard of WAMX.  I was just looking at the painted-over letters on the side and it looked like it said HLCX.  It looks like you have better data on this unit than I, so I am sure you are correct.  By the way, the first link you sent in your last e-mail actually failed.  At least I couldn't open it.  Could you check and re-send...
  Like someone mentioned about painting the handrails yellow, I would be tempted going out one night and cleaning off all the black patches to boldly show it's heritage...
