    I re-scanned an old slide from the NMRA national convention in St. Louis back in the summer of 2001. This is a shot of the SP depot on my NTRAK Imperial Sugar modules.

    Good start to the weekend, Russel, Jim and Grampy,


    No work done but a lot of stuff in progress that should be finished next week. So I took some pictures at the club with my Penn-Central stuff and a couple of new ATSF Beer cars from BLMA.

    Power is provided by Kato SD45 and SD40 Models that were superdetailed referring to articles by Jim Six in Model Railroading Magazine. First few cars are the Beer Cars by both BMLA and Eel River followed by PC Kelloggs Cereal Cars.

    Thanks for looking!

    About 150 units spread over all the types in the PC Fleet, there were also 11 engines painted with an orange C 10 GP40's and an RS-1. Supposedly that was a sop to the New Haven people. I did one of the GP40's, an Atlas unit with added detail.

    Johnstown, at the end of the Johnstown branch line, had their water wells run dry so their water has to be shipped in by rail. There is a siding above town where workers connect the tank cars to a pipeline that runs down to the townsite, under a bridge, and to a pump house where it is then pumped uphill to the water tank on a knoll above the town.

    Nice work Rick and great to see some PC models. Despite the increasingly derelict conditions on the PC, it was a highly interesting era of weedgrown branchlines to everywhere, jointed rail, manned interlockings, cabooses, position light signals, 40 foot equipment, freight under wire, all kinds of diesel power and a four-tracked Horseshoe Curve. I have a secret love affair with the PC, as I was born too late to have seen much PRR and never the NYC. I have an N Scale Atlas RS-11 I painted in PC and a number of PC freight cars too. Good to see the "mating worms" logo in any color. Again, thanks!

    PS - I also have a PC letter opener, found in a desk at my first job. It features the PC logo in green, surrounded by a reassuring "You Can Count On Us!" :D

    Say what you will, but I love the postings of anything PC. It has nothing to do with mismanagement and everything to do with me spending time with my father during that era. I have some memories of PRR, but it was during PC I have the bulk of fond memories. I even went out on many calls with him during ConRail after I was married. Walking bonds, looking for downed wire, walking in relay houses, the smell of electro-mechanical equipment, the fumes of the creosote soaked ties in the hot summer sun, the smell of them after a rain, cranking the phone three times to rouse Reading Road! Good memories for me. Thank you for posting PennCentral!
