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?
