Ah, I stand corrected. Thank you for the PRR history lesson. I always enjoy learning a bit about the Pennsy and the neighboring legacy railroads.

The B&O Railroad Mueseum in Baltimore, MD uses these cars on their exscursion train. They have 4 or 5 of them all in MARC Paint. The seats have the old MARC Seat Covers and everything. The locomotive is some kind of geep in Chessie paint. A fun ride and a cool way to expierence those cars. I know one car is in some red and white paint scheme as well. Maybe WM?

Anyways here's a vid of Thomas pulling the cars at the museum. Notice all of the cars have these ex-PRR Heritage Series markings towards the roofs.

I think the red & white car was painted to match the SW-1200 (I think) that they use at the museum for most service. The Chessie Geep should be the Trains' Magazine "All American Diesel" GP-38.

When I had a chance to take a tour of the restoration shop (seen in the background of that video) in August, one of the MARC cars was in the paint booth getting a B&O style blue and gray treatment, which IIRC they will all be getting as time and resources permit.

That would be nice to see but I hope they will let one car retain its MARC livery.
