Re: PC: Speculative Modelling

    I've always envisioned exactly the same in passenger equipment.    Do
you think PC would still be painting motive power black?   If you own a
copy of "PC Power" by Bob Yanosey, there is a color photo on pg. 136 of a
switcher painted by Despatch shops.  It is black with a green band centered
horizontally, bordered by white stripes, and the PC logo/lettering in the
green.  Looks real sharp!!   I think all would be forgiven by railfans in
general had PC chosen this scheme.
