Ron Moraca General Nice, Mike!!!!!!!! In all the years I've been looking at pics and videos of the PC, I don't recall ever having seen a clean locomotive. Their maintenance - of shops, yards, refueling pads, locomotives and rolling stock - was execrable. It's no wonder the PC only lasted for 857 days. Like the book says, the Penn Central was a wreck looking for a place to happen. 10/6/2009 9:28:47 PM
