Re: PC: E8 Windows

I think Garrett hit the nail on the head, the panels were replaced and the
portholes dissappeared. A lot of times plywood would be substituted for
the panels ( cheaper and they don't rust) and probably when you're in the
cheeseoid mode anyway keeping the portholes doesn't matter.

Someone brought up FRA rules regarding windows. I wonder if they
would really apply to windows that aren't in an area normally not occupied
by crew members?

 If you look a lot of roads lost their windows, and it looks like mostly PRR
 units lost them over NYC units.  The whole panel appears to be replaced
 rather than just blanking off of the window itself.
 These are General Motors units so the porthole windows may be linked to
 Buick portholes, both of which served as just as much of a service to
 society as a Pauly Shore movie.
