The old Pennsy /PC is truly all
but dead....sad and ironic that the N&W ended up owning the Pennsy when
50 years ago it was the exact opposite....
If the Government had gotten off their sorry rear ends
& passed the Staggers act in 1970 instead of 1980, I think PC would still be

I passed SO tower on the Pennsylvanian at 8PM Saturday only to
see a pile of rubble :-( More bad news includes two of the intermediate
signal bridges between SLOPE and the curve have been converted into color
light monstrocities. They are not even new signal bridhes, but horribly
awkward looking 3 track cantilevers.

Picture of the burned SO tower after an early morning arson fire
Three weeks ago I passed SO Tower on the Pennsylvanian.....I was
surprised at that time to see that it was still standing.
Always sad to see another of the few reminders of PRR/PC disappear.
