PC: Worms, Ovals, Keystones and ...

You left out the "NH".  :^)

First and foremost, I am a PC fan.  After that, it's a toss up.  All three
predecessor roads had things I was interested in, namely *JUICE*.

(No new news that I'm an electric fan... :^)

Ever since I could truly understand what was going on with electrics, I
have been captivated by the fact that a locomotive could reach up and pull
4000-5000 horsepower out of a wire about 1/2" in diameter. (or a third
rail)  It may have had something to do with my decision to become an
Electrical Engineer. (although I program computers now...)

The New Haven's triangular catenary system was one of the more impressive
things about operation under the wires.  The PRR/PC northeast corridor was
fascinating from the standpoint of the volume and speed of the trains.
And growing up on the Harlem line meant alomst daily contact with the New
Haven/PC FL9 locomotives (and the P & T motors to a lesser extent)
