PC: Speaking of color........... -Reply

   Someone mentioned this idea of the "red P" and "orange C" paint
schemes used on some of the earlier PC units after the merger.  Does
anyone know which units actually used these "untypical" schemes?  I
know that some ex-PRR units received the "red P" and some ex-NYC
units received the "orange-C", but what specific unit types were these
painted on?  What were some actual unit numbers?
   Also, were any freight cars painted with these unusual worms?

     If you look in Yanosey's Penn Central Power after the roster at the
end of the book is a list of about 50 notes on the roster.  One of the first
five notes lists the locomotives painted in both the "Orange C"  and "Red
P" logos.
