I have photos of 100% PC painted 1000-1100 series MU cars both with and
without the "M" under the car number. Most were taken at the Croton -North
scrap lines in the late 1970,s. Actually the cars seemed to be in pretty
good condition for being retired. Was this just hap-hazard PC repainting?
I plan to model a fleet of these cars. Any info would help. Also of
interest sitting in the weeds at the time were ex-NH observation "Bunker
Hill" and PC ex-NYC tavern-lounge 4447, as well as a few PC/Amtrak ex-NYC
E units in PC black and retired FL-9's. The first time I photographed
"Bunker Hill", it had PC logos. The next time, they had been 'removed' ,
I'll bet not by the railroad!
