I remember seeing a Penn Central double door boxcar parked in North Haven CT.
Its number was #176410
There is a baggage car at the Naugy Railroad still in PC paint with number #6563
At Cedar Hill yard there was a baggage car that looks like a Pennsy car with what looks like #7644.

In Amtrak's Hunter St. MOW yard in Newark, NJ there is a PC de-trucked baggage car as well as (somewhat painted out) PRR and NYC equipment.
In the Adams MOW base (mp 36 on the NYP main) a PC baggage car also lives on its trucks along with a few othe heritage cars with AMTK's pointless arrow on the sides.
You people are beautiful. Don't forget to tip your engineer. Good night.
there are 4 Ex Penn Central Ballast Hoppers siting along Rt 5 & 20 in Geneva, NY on the Finger Lakes Railway the numbers and logos have been painted out but the cars still remain in there dark Orange-Yellow paint. I managed to get a few pics of the cars befor they were repainted and remarked neather car was remarked by Conrail or NS befor transfer to the FGLK.

CSX is nothing but a continuous joke. No matter who this Capitalist Hedge Fund puts in, it will never be a REAL railroad!

You'll find great photos of Penn Central, New York Central, and Pennsylvania relics (some still surviving, others recently scrapped) here:

Ive seen some Hoppers (grain) and quite a few gons lettered for proggress rail services out here (Oregon). My favorite was the Reading coil cover that used to come through once in a while (I work on a North South part of BNSF).

not to stray to far off topic but there used to be a Reading Lines 2 Bay hopper that used to show up on the Finger Lakes Railway around 1998-1999 these were the dates in which I saw that car.
Any how There are a few Ex Penn Central cars that are marked for NAHX and I bleve PLCX that show up in Jordon, NY on occation at the grain elavator there. I have gotton pics of them I'll have to find them and post the numbers and reporting marks.
Here's a photo of the E-8 I mentioned earlier located in Bellevue, OH.
Not much left of the paint, but you can definately see the mating worms on the nose. Unit is PC 4321 according to someone who knows the history of the unit.
I was wondering if anyone has photos or paint diagrams of the 1972 PC Dodge flat bed trucks with the hydraulic crane? Recently we aquired one from a monument company and we are hoping to eventually repaint her. On the second page of our April 2005 newletter you will find some photos of her current appearance.
Also in the same issue is a story about our move of a former NYNH&H NE-5, PC NE6 caboose to the museum.
