Re: PC: PRR to PC to Amtrak Cabooses, PA

I have pics of a few of these cars in a collection I obtained last summer.
(4) ex AMTK cabins stencilled 'KC' 4502, 4503, 4504, 4505, all taken in Altoona, PA. 04, 02 and 05 on train ENPI on 12/24/92, 03 in an unknown train on 1/2/93.
I live in Leesport, PA just north of Reading, but would be unable to get out that way until February sometime.

Does anyone on this group lives within 100 miles of Burnham (Lewistown), PA?  Burnham is 60 highway miles northwest of Harrisburg.
There are seven ex-Amtrak cabooses reported at Standard Steel, Burnham.  The numbers given are Amtrak 14002, 14004, & 14020 and KC 4502, 4503, 4504, & 4505.  Who uses the initials "KC"?  Where is KC 4501 and is it ex-Amtrak?
Are some or all of these cabooses still in Burnham &/or are there photos of them available on a web site or via a jpeg?  Can any or all be identified by AMTK &/or PC road numbers?  If they haven't been repainted, they should have the former PC numbers stenciled on the upper corner of the car sides.
A recent compilation of "all ex-PRR Class N5 to PC to AMTK cabooses" lists no 14012, 14015, or 14019 to 14022.  Perhaps some of these, such as 14020, are among the Burnham mystery cars?
