Colonial Doorways? I put a door on my house this past weekend and I
think Home Depot when I see that name. I guess someone at Pullman had
a sense of humor and someone in PRR had some common sense.
I agree, although there were probably some serious political
considerations putting Mr. Firestone on there. A lot of other prominent
businessmen may have felt snubbed. One more thing that I forgot, if you
take Trains Magazine look for an add (half page) that Kalmbach took out
promoting some new books. One of them is a guide to PRR lightweight
cars with diagrams, rosters, and dispositions. It retails for $40
something but it is 200+ pages and looks like a winner based on other
books in this series that I own. I don't have it yet myself but do plan to
get it shortly.
