Re: PC: PC paint schemes -Reply

plenty of early - early conrail cars got painted in PC green, and some cars
were redone with EL maroon as well.   There's another case where an EL SW
got painted in PC black when it was relettered, too - I think they just
used up their paints before an official paint scheme was placed, or in the
case of these PC cars someone figured the NYC green was "close enough" and
needed to be used up.

: Yup. A common, but apparently diminishing problem.
