PC passenger horror stories.

Post by motor » Tue Nov 07, 2006 4:25 pm

I was 9 years old in 1970, the year the PC declared bankruptcy, and I hardly remember it. I lived in Boothwyn, PA.

Not until a couple of years into the AMTK era did I first ride an intercity train. I've recently read The Wreck of the Penn Central and it's somewhat short on PC's passenger service coverage.

Therefore, I use this thread to invite people to share their PC passenger horror stories, or direct me to a thread that has them. Thanks in advance.


P.S. Great site BTW.
