Re: PC: Speculative Modelling

Rob, I do have the PC Power book, and I've seen the picture of the 
Despatch Shops switcher. The caption mentions that it was repainted 
to PC black after it was moved to the regular roster, so I suspect 
that PC would not have 'livened up' their paint job. I wonder why 
they chose black to begin with? I realize they wanted an asture 
scheme, and didn't want red or green, but they could have used 
another color.
