Re: PC: PC Fairbanks-Morse H-12-44's...

   Thanks, Robert.  This is exactly what I was looking for.  This table 
tells me alot.  Correct me if I'm wrong, but it appears that only 2 
H-12-44's remainded in service by 1970 (8315, 8326) and only one by 1971 
(8326).  I have seen a picture of 8326 on Jerry's PC website (with small 
orange-C logo), but I have not seen a picture of the 8315 (appearantly the 
only H-12-44 painted in the <full?> PC scheme).  Does anyone have a picture 
of this unit in PC paint?  According to Roberts table, the unit was also an 
ex-NYC unit with MU capabilities.  Was this unit one of the later styled 
(boxy) H-12-44's?  Did it ever MU with anything during PC's ownership?
