 green locos with white and red lettering, passenger cars with bright green
 window panels and red lettering/logos.   Con-cor passenger cars had a
 bright green letter board as I remember.  Where did these schemes come
 from?   Only Bachmann was close to accurate with a black GP-40 and "F-9"(
 F-7).   Were there any other  mfrs. of PC models?   >>
In N scale, anyway, in the late 1960s and early 1970s, there were lots of Penn
Central items available.  The greatest number were by Atlas, I guess, and were
generally pretty well done.  Other N scale producers of PC items included
Aurora/MiniTrix, Arnold-Rapido, Bachmann, and I believe there was something
offered by AHM too.  Too bad so many of them could never come close to the
correct green, even when PC was alive & "well."
